"McDermott, a self-taught baker whose workshops have taught hundreds how to make a proper pie, shares that knowledge in one of the best books written on the topic. Those expecting a quick preamble followed by hundreds of pie recipes will be sorely disappointed-basic instructions take up a third of the book-but readers interested in the hows and whys of pie-making will find McDermott's tutelage invaluable...McDermott excels, giving readers an informative guide they will be referring to for years to come." -- Publisher's Weekly, *STARRED REVIEW* "Kate McDermott will not only teach you how to make a pie-and a damn fine pie at that-she'll show you how the homey and grounding craft of baking contains important life lessons. Her expertise, creativity, and generosity abound in these pages. The Art of the Pie is destined to be one of those fruit-stained, dog-earred, spine-snapped books you'll cherish for years." -- David Leite - LeitesCulinaria.com
