Episode 59: Known for Pie

cover59This episode is devoted to an interview with my mother, Kathleen. She is an experienced baker and is respected for her beautifully-presented and delicious pies. I learned most of my kitchen know-how from close observation of my mother — observation which began when I could climb onto a stool and sit at the end of the counter. My sisters and I were always invited to participate. From finding vegetables in the refrigerator and stirring ingredients together, to using sharp knives, we were expected to pitch in and we were never too small to take part in food preparation. I’m especially grateful to Mom for this interview. I hope that you will share your questions and your tips on flour and baking in the Ravelry thread for the Bulk Bins Cook-along.
