Tarts and Pies: Classic and Contemporary

Tarts and Pies: Classic and Contemporary

by PhillippaVanstone (Author)


In 2003 Grub Street published Cakes Regional & Traditional by Julie Duff. The book became a bestseller and was shortlisted for the prestigious Glenfiddich Award. It was highly praised by the food press especially Nigel Slater and Tom Parker Bowles. In this companion volume Philippa Vanstone, a former pastry chef turned cookery writer and food stylist who has worked with some of the country's top photographers, is tackling the subject of tarts and pies with the same enthusiasm and fascinating historical background, which was found in Cakes. Philippa has a passion for pastry and sweet creations and she has now committed to paper her most treasured collection of recipes, in this her first book. There are classics such as Lemon Meringue Pie, Apple Pies, Cherry Clafoutis, Gooseberry Pie, Banoffee Pie and Lemon Tart, as well as modern day delights such Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pie, Ice Cream Pie and Pistachio Tart. There are over 150 recipes, many photographed in full colour, in what is destined to be a pastry cook's bible.
