Author & Pie Baker Beth HowardDe-stress holiday baking! Ignore rules & focus on what's in front of you. So says Beth Howard, the author and adventure traveler who taught pie baking classes and ran the Pitch Fork Pie Stand inside the Eldon, Iowa farmhouse made famous by artist Grant Wood. Beth's iconoclastic pie-deology enlivens her book, MS. AMERICAN PIE: BUTTERY GOOD PIE RECIPES AND BOLD TALES FROM THE AMERICAN GOTHIC HOUSE.

eth made pies for Steven Speilberg (coconut cream), Dick Van Dyke (strawberry rhubarb), and Barbara Streisand (lemon meringue). She gave pie away and taught pie baking classes in the grieving community of Newtown, Connecticut. Although Beth's closed the pie stand and moved out of the Gothic House, she still believes in the healing power of pie. You will, too, if you read her books or listen to this rebroadcast episode.
