“The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about pies is friends and family. There’s a great satisfaction about cutting up a pie into pieces and dishing out slices to your loved ones. Once you master a great pie crust and some classic fillings, feel free to explore on how to make your own pie variations and decorations. Add in your own personality – and I hope one day these recipes in some form are handed down from you to yours for generations ahead.”
– Chef Dominique Ansel
