The Pie Project is a collection of 60 delicious sweet pie recipes, in all their bubbling, fruity, caramelised, buttery glory. Pies are very forgiving desserts for bakers: spillages are, really just an opportunity for more caramelisation and a mis-shapen pie just adds to the rustic feel! Readers are encouraged to use imperfect fruit, play around with lattice, design their own pastry top and bake the pies in whatever they have handy (some are cooked in skillets, or even enamel bowls).
The four chapters in this sumptuously photographed book are; &apos'The Hot Pies' with a grape, mascapone and honey skillet pie; 'The Cheats', with the luscious blueberry and pear cider pie; the 'Hand Pies' with a maple syrup, apple and stem ginger pie; and the 'Cold Pies' that includes a coconut pie with watermelon and mint sorbet. Delicious!
All skill levels are catered for, as some pies are made with homemade pastry, others with bought. These methods sit alongside pies featuring biscuit bases, as well as bottomless pies. The Pie Project is out to convince the world that pie really is the ultimate answer to any sweet craving
