Pieography Cookbook Review

PieographyPieography: Where Pie Meets Biography - 42 Fabulous Recipes Inspired by 39 Extraordinary Women
Provided by Where Women Cook
Reviewed by Danielle Zimmerman, editor of


Pies, both savory and sweet, have always been an important part of our culture. We make them for special occasions, such as Thanksgiving and other holidays, as well as simple low-key family meals. There's just something so comforting about a slice of pie that we just can't get enough of. If you're as much of a fan of pie as I am, you're definitely going to want to have your very own copy of Pieography: Where Pie Meets Biography - 42 Fabulous Recipes Inspired by 39 Extraordinary Women.


As this its title suggests, this cookbook interweaves delicious pie recipes with stories of family, passion, and lifelong dreams. While the short stories or biographies give you a taste of the womens' lives, it's actually the recipes themselves that speak loudest. Understanding the ingredients and care that goes into each pie recipe helps make the reader empathize with the women and really understand their stories. It's a wonderful and fresh new form of storytelling that I've never really seen before. I can honestly say that I would pick this cookbook up just to read it.


The recipes themselves cover every kind of pie, from a savory meal to an after-dinner sweet. After browsing through the cookbook, my personal favorite recipe that I can't wait to try is actually the pie featured on the cover: Michele Muska's Midsummer Night's Dream Pie with Rhubarb, Peaches, & Raspberries (p. 112). How wonderfully juicy and delicious does that sound? I'm also a huge fan of the Traditional Rustic Chicken Potpie (p. 34). The great thing about each one of these recipes is that they are accompanied by at least one stunning and colorful photo that really gives you a feeling for not only how the pie will look, but also a bit about how it will taste.


If you're a fan of all types of pies, Pieography is one cookbook that you definitely want to have in your kitchen cookbook collection.
