The New Pie – Promotion

On February 1st, I shared a preview and interview with the authors of The New Pie: Modern Techniques for the Classic American Dessert.  As you will learn from the interview, Chris Taylor and Paul Arguin are pie gods. Today we are thrilled to share an EYBDigital Preview and giveaway for this amazing book! Please note, The New Pie is our baking selection for May in our EYB Cookbook Club I will share some details from my earlier preview but first I will add that I have had this book for two months now and I am as in love with it as the first moment I cast my eyes upon it. The honeymoon is not over.  Do not let that gorgeous apple pie on the cover falsely lead you to believe that this is just a “pie cookbook”. While that is one stunning apple pie, there is nothing typical here. These are not your grandmother’s pie recipes. This book features high octane pies that are both delightful and refreshing using traditional techniques and modern tools.  The photography is stunning, the detailed instructions are invaluable, and the pie recipes are everything. Flaky crusts, creamy fillings, swirling whipped cream, and torched meringues like no others you have come across before. This is the new pie and this is the pie book you will want on your bookshelf.   There are so many unique and interesting recipes that I guarantee that even the most experienced pie baker will be impressed. How about a Toffee cream with crunch or a Clemenza’s cannoli or even a Caramel popcorn pie? And what really cut the butter into my flour was the showpiece pies chapter – Strawberry chocolate cosmos! Bubbling butterbeer! Oh my! I have made the Peanut butter checkerboard pie (or most of it). The link will take you to the photograph and my notes. You will want to make this pie, my son is asking when I’m making it again. The authors’ events are on our calendar so please check to see if they are in your area. Our  takes you inside this pie-tacular title and features the following
