Masters of Social Gastronomy Presents: All-American Pie
Each month, Sarah and Soma take on a curious food topic and break down the history, science, and stories behind it. This November MSG tackles the twin pillars of the American pie kingdom: the gentle apple pie and its heavily-spiced cousin, pumpkin pie. Think making an apple pie is simple? A trip to the grocery yields a thousand and one varieties of apples, all bearing well-marketed and uninformative monikers: Gala, Northern Spy, Empire, Honeycrisp, Granny Smith. They’ll uncover the magic each cultivar brings to the dinner table, and how to be sure you’re baking the best in your apple pie. You’ll learn about the pumpkin pie and discover how this New World gourd combined with English pie ingenuity became the classic Thanksgiving dish.
