Have I told you how much I enjoy making anything that involves a pie crust? You wouldn’t think so looking through my blog (there are so few pie recipes), but I do. I really do. There’s something so satisfying about mixing together flour and butter to the perfect texture with your hands. You can make it in a food processor too of course, but I don’t own one and would probably still do it by hand. One of my new obsessions is slicing butter thinly with a cheese slicer. Mmmm.. so satisfying! Why haven’t I thought of that before?
Speaking of my love for pies (and tarts, galettes, crumbles… you get the idea), my new book Lomelino’s Pies will be available very soon (October 24th!) and I couldn’t be more excited about this one! It contains all of my favorite pie recipes. Classics like Apple Pie, Strawberry Rhubarb Galette and Lemon Meringue Pie to Nutella and Cream Cheese Pie Pops, Blackberry and Chocolate Crumbles and Cinnamon Bun Apple Pie just to mention a few. It also contains my best techniques for making a beautiful and decorative crust and delicious ice creams and sauces. If you want to see some more photos from my book and read a little more about it, make sure to check out my publisher Roost books. And you can also pre-order it from Amazon right here!
