|Pie it Forward|
by Gesine Bullock-Prado
Pies are as old as the pyramids and baker, confectioner, and pastry master Gesine Bullock–Prado has elevated this time-proven favorite to a new level with her Pie it Forward cookbook. Bullock–Prado believes that pies are so special, they can even be served at special events such as birthdays, dinner parties, anniversaries, and yes, weddings. She introduces an entirely new frontier of pies, redefining what can be done with a piecrust and pastry shell. Expect lattice and cutouts with an entirely modern twist. Homemade puff pastry made easy. Individual pie pops to replace tired cupcakes. Surprising and wildly successful explorations with beer (Chocolate Stout Pudding Pie), exotic fruits (Yuzu-Ginger Rice Pudding Meringue Pie), and candy making (Earl Grey Truffle Tart). And there are the classics too—riffing on her German roots, her Hollywood background, and life on her Vermont farm—a Blueberry Brown Butter Tart, an Italian Plum Tart with a yeasted-dough crust, a tiramisu-inspired Espresso Tart, a Vermont Pizza Pie, and more. Including sweet, savory, layered, and miniature pies and tarts,
The book contains 96 recipes with beautiful colored photographs by Tina Rupp.
