For those of you who aren't up on your Pinterest food trends, slab pie is just like regular pie-only better (and bigger)!

PIE SQUARED includes seventy-five foolproof recipes, along with inventive decoration tips that will appeal to baking nerds and occasional bakers alike.

In addition to traditional pie dough, she offers more than a dozen crust recipes-from cracker crusts and cornbread crusts to cookie crusts and cheddar cheese crusts. Using these as a base, Barrow then entices readers with both savory and sweet slab pie creations, with recipes like Spinach, Gorgonzola, and Walnut Slab Pie and Curried Chicken Slab Pie to Sour Cream Peach Melba Slab Pie and Grande Mocha Cappuccino Slab Pie.

'I have bought more copies of this book to give to people, in a frenzy of enthusiasm, than any other . . . Heartburn is the perfect, bittersweet, sobbingly funny, all-too-true confessional novel' Nigella Lawson Seven months into her pregnancy, Rachel discovers that her husband is in love with another woman. The fact that this woman has a 'neck as long as an arm and a nose as long as a thumb' is no consolation. Food sometimes is, though, since Rachel is a cookery writer, and between trying to win Mark back and wishing him dead, she offers us some of her favourite recipes. Heartburn is a roller coaster of love, betrayal, loss and - most satisfyingly - revenge.This is Nora Ephron's (screenwriter of When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle) roman a clef: 'I always thought during the pain of the marriage that one day it would make a funny book,' she once said - And it is!Books included in the VMC 40th anniversary series include: Frost in May by Antonia White; The Collected Stories of Grace Paley; Fire from Heaven by Mary Renault; The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter; The Weather in the Streets by Rosamond Lehmann; Deep Water by Patricia Highsmith; The Return of the Soldier by Rebecca West; Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston; Heartburn by Nora Ephron; The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy; Memento Mori by Muriel Spark; A View of the Harbour by Elizabeth Taylor; and Faces in the Water by Janet Frame

Baking with Steel

Authors:
Andris Lagsdin, Jessie Oleson Moore

Make the best baked goods-pretzels, pizzas, pies-you've ever made- along with pancakes, slab ice cream, and much, much more.Most people know the landmark Modernist Cuisine books for their groundbreaking scientific culinary techniques. But the most relevant finding to come from their lab is that the thermodynamics of home baking can be transformed by a simple slab of steel. That fact led Andris Lagsdin, a former chef who had returned to work at his family's steel manufacturing company, to create the Baking Steel, a plate of metal that serves as supercharged pizza stone, griddle, slab ice cream maker, and more.In this book, you'll find recipes and innovative techniques for a truly transformative piece of kitchen equipment. In BAKING WITH STEEL, readers will learn how to achieve restaurant-quality baked goods, make grilled meats a la plancha, and make pizza crust with a crunch and char home cooks have previously only dreamed of. Above all, this book is the companion book to the tool that is quickly becoming a must-have item for serious cooks and bakers, one that puts niche pizza stones and skillet pans to shame.
