Pie is a delicious juxtaposition: it's simple yet celebratory. It's at home at both the backyard barbecue and the holiday table. Its image is invoked to reference a slice of Americana, and it's a source of heated debate (butter vs. shortening). Join 5280 Food Editor Amanda M. Faison and Shauna Lott of the Long I Pie to discuss the magic of the dessert through the pages of "Four and Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book." Read and cook through the book (salted caramel apple, black currant-lemon chiffon, strawberry-balsamic!), and come prepared to chat recipes, baking secrets, and more. Bonus: Samples!
