- About the Author
Cooking is an art and baking is a science, and making pies is a combination of both. Who can resist a home-baked pie? There is nothing more satisfying than a piping-hot, freshly baked pie, tart or quiche which has just come out of the kitchen oven. Whether you're after savoury or sweet, humble or gourmet, small or family-sized, you'll find just the recipes in this cookbook.
