The craft of Pie

 (tomato-anchovy quiche followed by lattice apple)


Pies are a varied yet often overlooked cuisine.

Even back in the US, many people use stiff and bland store-bought pie crusts. I hope to inculcate an appreciation for the importance of making your own pie crust (using butter). 

While we wait for our food to cook, I will talk about the history of my family's pie crust recipe

(it's connected to the volcanic history

of the American Pacific northwest.)
