Pie School is Now in Session!

Since the first publication of Pie School in 2014, Kate Lebo has inspired bakers everywhere with her witty and encouraging lessons on all things flaky and sweet. This completely revised and updated edition includes 20 brand-new pies—including two new chapters, one on savory meat or vegetable pies and one on “difficult” (lesser-known) fruit pies—plus updates to the originals (80 in total). Her proven process to achieve flakiness and structure, along with recipes for delicious, inspired fillings, will give home cooks all the skills they need to make the best pie of their lives. Beyond the bake, Lebo also invites us to ruminate on the social history, the meaning, and the place of pie in the pantheon of favorite foods.

Recipes include
Brandied Apple and Cracked Cardamom Pie                       
White Peach and Raspberry Galette
Rosemary Rhubarb and Vanilla Chevre Galette
Winter Luxury Pumpkin Pie             
Huckleberry Pie
Marionberry Pie with Hazelnut Crumble
Lamb, Pumpkin, and Quince Pie       
Chicken Pot Pie
