Background Information on Pie

The evolution of pie, and America’s undying bond with it, was actually a slow and messy approach – not unlike making a pie itself. Warm pie takes you home even if you’re sitting in a big table in a noisy and busy cafe that seats and serves hundreds of people and prepares nearly a million meals every single year. Pie is one of the mainstays that has enabled Southern cuisine to spread across the country. There are pie recipes from old southern cookbooks, but they survive through tradition, passed down generation-to-generation.
