Ep 64: Nothing Says I Love You Like a Savory Pork Pie

February 19, 2018

Andrea is reporting back from the Cascadia Grains Conference and is excited about being part of the movement to revitalize the grain economy in the Pacific NW, and bake Whole Grain Digestive Biscuits.

Our hosts review the Pork, Apple and Cider Pie from Paul Hollywood's Pies and Puds cookbook. Andrea and Stefin had equal success, and both hosts agree that a side of mashed potatoes are absolutely essential for the delicious gravy that comes naturally with this pie.

Up next is Alton Brown's Shoo-Fly Pie, another pie from the popular 'desperation pie' or 'pantry pie' category. Be sure to read the instructions carefully on this one (or make it easy on yourself and use February's sponsor Pie Provisions Pie Crust mix!)

To wrap up this week's episode of Pie School, the hosts share their essential pie tools, including a pastry wheel, a tapered rolling pin, and, finally, a PieBox!
