Praise For…

“The pies in Easy as Pie are both familiar and new, featuring interesting twists on the classic American apple and turkey pot pies, as well as completely new variations like the Salted Honey Pie. The recipes are well written, easy to follow, and create mouth-watering pastries. Looking forward to making my way through every pie in this beautiful book!”—Jane Soudah, author of Delightful Desserts, season 2 winner of the Spring Baking Championship on Food Network

Easy As Pie really touches on all the fundamentals of dialing into the perfect pie. Saura Madani tailored this to be easy, approachable, and educational—no matter if you're a home baker or a professional. There's plenty of baking bibles out there, but this is now my baking pie-ble!”—Ryan Stipp, pastry chef/chocolatier

“Being a pastry chef, I find myself avoiding pies, as they seem too intimidating with too many inconsistencies in the final results. Chef Saura really works out all the how-to's, as well as tips and tricks to achieve consistency and make the entire process truly as easy as pie. Whether you are a professional or non-professional in the kitchen, this is a book you need to have in your collection.”—Justin Fry, executive pastry chef, Pastry Chef of the Year 2016
