"Itand#8217;s a conundrum I canand#8217;t understand. Someoneand#8217;s hankering for pie; you can see the pie-longing in their eyes. They want a delicious flaky crust, something with buttery overtones. They want fresh fruitand#151;not a vague whisper of berry in a butter cream, but overt chunks of apple, discernible bites of berry. But itand#8217;s just not done. You donand#8217;t serve pie at special events like fiftieth birthdays, dinner parties, silveranniversaries, or, God forbid, at a wedding. To which I reply, and#145;Bullpuckies.and#8217;"

And so begins Pie It Forward: Pies, Tarts, Tortes, Galettes, and Other Pastries Reinvented. Pie has always been a popular cookbook topic, yet in Pie It Forward, baker, confectioner, and pastry master Gesine Bullock-Prado unveils an entirely new frontier of pies, redefining what can be done with a piecrust and pastry shell. Expect lattice and cutouts with an entirely modern twist. Homemade puff pastry made easy. Individual pie pops to replace tiredcupcakes. Surprising and wildly successful explorations with beer (Chocolate Stout Pudding Pie), exotic fruits (Yuzu-Ginger Rice Pudding Meringue Pie), and candy making (Earl Grey Truffle Tart). And there are the classics tooand#151;riffing on her German roots, her Hollywood background, and life on her Vermont farmand#151;a Blueberry Brown Butter Tart, an Italian Plum Tart with a yeasted-dough crust, a tiramisu-inspired Espresso Tart, a Vermont Pizza Pie, and more. Including sweet, savory, layered, and miniature pies and tarts, Bullock-Prado presents these recipes with a voice that removes the intimidation factor and inspires readers to break out of the double-crust straitjacket and try her signaturecreationsand#151;and to laugh out loud along the way.

I am so admiring of this book that I am buying it for my sister-in-law, who like my self has a taste for the science of cooking combined with a sweet-tooth.

The author makes astute observations based on thorough research. Her explanations of the chemistry of pastry and desert making are easily understandable and helpful in producing delicious results.

Her recipes always include an extra step to create that extra special taste.

She is very enthusiastic about her subject and that provides a good counter balance to what sometimes feels a bit hyper-precise. Sometimes the amounts of the ingredients seem to work out to be a skosh on the scant side, but maybe I'm just greedy and my pie plates are too big. That said when I am using a recipe from another source I always check what "The Pie and Pastry Bible" might contribute to my information.
