Curious about pie and the people who make them... 10. Januar 2008
Von J. Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf
Mr. Edge crossed the country in search of the perfect apple pie and how it connects to the people who bake them. He found many more bad pies than good. Fortunately, he shares with us the highlights of his journey. His stories affirm that great apple pie is as rich and varied as the (American) people who bake them. I started baking pies because, 1. fresh pie is so great, 2. nobody else would make them for me, and 3. commercial pies are too sweet and mushy. The Apple Pie book tells me that I am not alone as a snob of the not-so-fancy apple pie. Thank you Mr. Edge for finding all these pie bakers, for telling their stories, and for sharing their recipes.

Apple Pie: An American Story 31. März 2013
Von M. Reynard - Veröffentlicht auf
This is the second book in Edge's series about food. The first was about Fried Chicken. And I do think this second book was written better. And I'm not even a pie fan, but I found the information contained within to be interesting.

Apple Pie is definitely considered all American. There are so many variations from crumb toppings, to mock apple pie, to a flaky crust that everybody believes they do it the right way. In this book, Edge goes around the country trying out different versions of the pie and meeting the people that make them. Sadly, most of the pies he tries are not up to par, but there are a rare few that stand out and make his trips worthwhile. He also explores some of the history behind the pies and even presidents that had a fondness for the apple variety.

He meets some interesting people in his journeys. Especially the ladies that make the fried pies, they have some unique, albeit sad, stories about how they first started making pies. And then there's the guy who adds chilies to his pies. I thought he was interesting and had a fantastic idea. One I'd like to try out myself if I could only make a decent crust. And Edge himself is a charming narrator. He has a lot of belief and love of food and keeps trying even if he does run in to some not so tasty renditions of pie.

This book flowed a little better than the first book did. The chapters were slightly longer and allowed for a more in-depth look at the places he was exploring and the type of pie that was being produced. It also allowed more time for interviewing the people and relating a bit of history as well. I still would have liked to see more about the food itself. He covered the history very well, and even included a few recipes, but this was a very fast read and I think a lot more could have been added.

This book hasn't quite made me a pie convert, but I do want to try the green chili apple pie now and will have to hold on to the recipe from this book. I think anyone who appreciates the history of food would probably enjoy reading this book, or really any from the series.

Review by M. Reynard 2013
Entertaining insights into apple pie. 13. August 2011
Von artknows - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I liked this books about apple pie. The author takes the reader on a coast to coast romp in a quest to learn the true meaning of the most iconic of all fruit pies. The writing style is evocative and insightful. When the subject is an apple pie of note, a recipe follows; giving the reader a chance to create the same sensory experience as the author. You will have to read the book to know what I am referring to here: I yearn for the day I can purchase a chili infused apple pie at my local truck stop. Overall a fun, well written book.
Nice stories about cruising the country for pie... and a few recipes 14. Januar 2012

This book is a quick, fun read. I was paging through it last night, and now I have an itch to do a cross-country road trip. My first stop will be for one of those apple pie shakes in Iowa City... or maybe I'll drive out there (229 miles from here) this afternoon. I was with Mr. Edge the whole way, elated with the pies that lived up to their billings, and disappointed in those which, well, didn't. Any book that makes me want pie badly enough to consider making one from scratch is a pretty good book.
Good book. Read on kindle then purchased real book 8. Januar 2013

So I read this from the library on my Kindle last year. When up in SF I visited Mission Pie, and they'd made an apple pie with chili, which I remembered was a recipe from this book. So, I ordered the physical copy to have that recipe around.
