I Made a Square Pie

Posted: September 18th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Calabria, Italy, Unexpected Adventure | 5 Comments »

Mark this one up to “cultural differences.” In Italy they don’t really have “pie” in the sense that American’s typically understand it. That is, the round, large pastry with a butter-based crust and filled with fruit or other filling. So, when it came out that I knew how to make apple pie, and they asked me to make one, and I agreed, we hit an early snag: they had no pie tins. A search revealed no container of any material that could be described as “pie shaped,” and this is a place with a professional restaurant kitchen. So, we improvised, and I made a square pie.

With all those apples, sugar, and nearly two pounds of butter in there, I think the shape probably doesn’t matter too much. What is most important is it received the Halbe Thumbs Up Seal of Approval™.

    We didn’t. That’s actually a pretty good idea.

    Good job, Halb! I’m sure they are all pie fans now, square or otherwise.

    I really liked leaf motif on the top. Looks very classy. And I guess it tasted good too.
