4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect pies, 25 May 2004
This review is from: Tarts with Tops On: How to Make the Perfect Pie (Hardcover)
This book is packed with mouth-watering pies. There are traditional savoury pies, foreign pies, apple pies and sweet pies. In short, this book has a pie for all occasions. There are also some unusual pies - for example the Feta, Rice and Yoghurt Pie was an eye-opener!
The chapter on Traditional Pies offers several old favourites, those long-forgotten pies that have been violated by commercialisation. These pies will take you back to the good old days when pies were made from wholesome ingredients, guaranteed to leave you satisfied. Here you will be able to recreate Melton Mowbray Pork Pies, Cornish Pasties, Devonshire Squab Pies and Streak and Kidney Pudding, amongst others.
There is also a chapter dedicated to pies made famous by other people, such as Claudia Roden, Nigel Slater and Michel Roux.
My personal favourite - sweet pies: from apple pies to a whole host american pies. All I can say is this section alone will inspire you to bake more pies. I have made about two thirds of the recipes in this section and each one has been applauded by family and friends. I think this book is worth getting even if it's just for the sweet stuff.
Of course, as in The Art of Tart, Tamsin Day Lewis seems to insist on all things organic. Sometimes, it is just not possible to get organic cocoa powder, and I happily ignore such instructions and the results are still excellent.
