Beth M. Howard knows about pie. She made pies at California’s Malibu Kitchen for celebrities including Barbra Streisand (lemon meringue), Dick Van Dyke (strawberry rhubarb), and Steven Spielberg (coconut cream) before moving back home to rural Iowa. She now lives in the famous American Gothic House (the backdrop for Grant Wood’s famous painting) and runs the hugely popular Pitchfork Pie Stand.

With full-color photos throughout, Ms. American Pie features 80 of Beth’s coveted pie recipes and some of her own true tales to accompany them. With chapters like Pies to Heal, Pies to Seduce, and Pies to Win the Iowa State Fair, Beth will divulge her secret for making a killer crust without refrigerating the dough and will show you how to break every rule you’ve ever learned about making delicious, homemade pie.

Customer Review

How can we not love pie. How can we not love Beth Howard. All of Iowa is sad she could no longer keep up with her business in the American Gothic House but here we have her refreshing ‘voice’ along with her recipes and we can make our own pie. Plus not only is the content of this book fun and educational and enjoyable but it is simply a very beautiful book. I have owned it quite some time now and haven’t yet been able to shelve it. I have, however, used many of the recipes. This past wesk it was Gooseberry pie.
