A Sweet Hour of GREAT TASTE!

THIS WEEK'S SHOW

James Beard Award Winner Mindy Segal

Ms. American Pie Beth Howard

Cookie Love2012 James Beard Pastry Award Winner, Molly Segal, owner of Hot Chocolate in Chicago, kicks off the show.  We're going to talk about her new book.  You can see it to the left, and it has a recipe for my absolute favorite store-bought-cookie-of-my-youth, Pepperidge Farm's Milanos.  Can't wait to try it.  Make Hot Chocolate a destination if you are going to Chicago.

Beth Howard >Next up one of my favorite individuals in the entire universe, Beth Howard.  Beth, the author of Making Piece and Ms. American Pie, is dropping by before starting out on her WORLD PIECE tour, where she will be making pie around the world to highlight goodness, community-building, and promote cultural tolerance. 

During a 12-week tour she'll visit and make American-style pies in 10 different countries, and learn what "pie" is like in those countries from her hosts.  Check out this article about Beth and other culinary folks working to make the world a brighter spot.

Ms American Pie Book Cover

 

Beth Howard's new book busts pie-baking myths and boasts 80 diverse and tasty recipes. Released by Race Point Publishing, Ms. American Pie: Buttery Good Recipes and Bold Tales from the American Gothic House instantly sold out. (You can still buy it; the publisher put out a second printing.) What accounts for this book's wild popularity? Beth deeply reveres pie's community-building aspects while eschewing contemporary stipulations that frighten modern bakers.

Take it from the baker who made Steven Speilberg coconut cream pie, Dick Van Dyke strawberry rhubarb, and Barbra Steisand lemon meringue: baking pie can be simple and fun. Becoming a confident pie baker could lead you to greater adventures. Find out how on The Studio with Cheryl and Beth Howard this week.
