American Pie

Pascale Le Draoulec

A roadtrip centered around a pie quest, Le Draoulec and her travel partners stay off the interstates and hit mostly small towns, asking the locals, “Where do you go for pie around here?” Worth reading if anything for all the recipes. Maybe it’s because I know so many people who enjoy baking and cooking, but I found the direness of the homemade pie situation a bit overstated. I don’t think we are (yet) witnessing the death of pie, though it’s true our culture in general doesn’t leave time for learning the art of pie dough.
