As American As Apple Pie
State fairs are as American as apple pie, and what better place to have a slice of pie than at the fair? At the Big E I had a big piece of "bumbleberry" pie. I'm not exactly sure what was in it, but there had to have been at least three different kinds of berries, and maybe rhubarb or apple.
I love pie and I'm happy to report that we have lots of pie books! Everything from how to make a perfect pie to a road trip to find the perfect slice of pie:
Beranbaum, Rose Levy. The Pie and Pastry Bible. [641.865 BER] (One look at the cover and you'll be hooked!)
Haedrich, Ken. Pie: 300 Tried and True Recipes for Delicious Homemade Pie. [641.8652 HAE]
LeDraoulec, Pascale. American Pie: Slices of Life (And Pie) from America's Back Roads. [641.8652 LED]
Purdy, Susan G. The Perfect Pie: More Than 125 All-Time Favorite Pies and Tarts. [641.8652 PUR]
For kids, we have some great picture books with stories that revolve around pies!
Martin, David. All for Pie, Pie for All. [JP MAR]

The best part about reading about pie is you take in zero calories!
