Pie is comfort food, which is why the same recipes appear again and again, if with some variations. Not so in this collection from Chris Taylor and Paul Arguin—an IACP Award finalist and one of the Best Cookbooks of the Year for NPR and Food52. Doctors by day and prizewinning pie bakers on the weekend, Taylor and Arguin make pie a creative outlet in its own right, with 75 recipes that blend time-honored techniques with modern cooking methods and innovative flavor profiles and textures. Here are delights like a Blueberry-Maple Pie (with wood-grain lattice), King Fluffernutter Pie, and the striped chocolate Pie of the Tiger, not to mention the Saturday Morning Cartoon Cereal Pie and a magical Bubbling Butterbeer Pie.
