Holly Ricciardi, owner of Philadelphia's Magpie Artisan Pie Boutique, provides expert instruction on all things tender and flaky, and over 80 invaluable recipes in this 256-page hardbound book. Magpie is simply organized into four chapters: Flaky Pie Crust, Fruity Pies, (mostly) Creamy Pies and Savory pies. The recipe selections are interesting, diverse and seasonal; most are on menu rotation at Magpie, and virtually all are based on her single and spectacular pie dough recipe. The many stand-out sweet and savory recipes include Sweet Crumb Pie, Caramel Apple Pie, Cookie Dough Hand Pie, Lemon Curd Pie, Cranberry Curd Mini Meringue Pies, Blueberry Rhuby Rose Pie, Chocolate Blackout Pie, Summer Squash Pie, Ham-Leek-Dijon Potpies, Quiche Lorraine, and more. By presenting just one dough recipe (the only one she uses at her restaurant), Ricciardi gives the reader one achievable target to practice and rely on, and it really may be the only pie crust you will ever need to know. It's a really wise strategy for short and long-term success. Lots of full-color photography captures the luscious, honest nature of her baking and provides solid, demonstrative instruction. Bottom line, if you want to learn how to bake great pies or improve your skills and grow your repertoire, Magpie is an excellent and highly recommended resource. Magpie: Sweets and Savories from Philadelphia's Favorite Pie Boutique by Holly Ricciardi and Miriam Harris. Published by Running Press. Hardcover. 256 Pages.
