Some people love to bake pies. For them, it is stress-relieving therapy. Others bake pies to process grief such as Beth Howard—author of the memoir Making Piece—after the untimely death of her young husband. Still others bake for the sheer joy of creating a culinary masterpiece and they are darn good at it!
If none of these descriptions fits you—but you love pie and want to bake your own—then join me in San Francisco at Jen Cafferty’s Gluten & Allergen-Free Expo on February 9 and 10.
