“Savory and hearty, simple and sweet, or messy and gooey, these pages tell women’s stories through more than just words.”
“Pie∙ography” is a beautiful collection of 42 fabulous recipes inspired by 39 extraordinary women. It reveals life’s most delicious, captured moments, as told through the most salacious ingredients, so it’s not only about divine treats (which there are plenty of!), but about the memories that surround the crafting of each pie. While the pictures of the pies in this book are lovely and beautiful on their own, the hands that knead the dough, stir the filling, and shape the crust hold the amazing stories of each woman’s astonishing life.
Creative connoisseur and author of “Pie∙ography,” Jo Packham, opens up her new book by sharing two tantalizing pie recipes with a twist on tradition. “Nothing about my life, or my pies, can be considered classical or conventional,” she explains. She approaches her pies the way she approaches people: “exclusively, distinctively and creatively,” which shows why her pies are made fresh and in individual servings.
Finding a balance between femininity and farm life, one of “Pieography’s” featured artisans, Anne Marie Klaske, dedicates her mouthwatering Chicken Potpie recipe to her traditional roots. Drawing upon her country lifestyle, she uses rustic flavors to infuse her dishes. Everything she cooks is thoughtfully prepared from scratch, without uniformity or perfection.
“When Jo Packham contacted me early last year, to contribute to her book, it was more than just flattering, it was a chance to contribute to a book featuring my life intimately snuggled under pie crust all warm and satisfying to whoever wants to try it.” - Anne Marie Klaske
