Trend-spotters are calling pie the food of the year. Did it ever go out of style? Any way you slice it, pie is perfect. Sweet or savory, pan or bite-sized, home-made or store baked, this versatile pastry entices us with its unpretentious simplicity. I can't think of any food more wholesome than pie - it's classic Americana. And with the public's renewed appetite for this humble dessert "Pie Happy Hour" and Pie Shops are popping up across the country. And with it modern takes on classic or vintage recipes. So with National Pie Day just around the corner (Jan 23) why not bake off the new year with your favorite version of the pastry round? It's easy as pie.
