Last night must.love.food. was all about pie.
Because you must.love.pies.
Whether you love a super sweet and richly decadent pie; or prefer a tart and light key lime pie … we were able to provide you with a recipe for both.
The show started with my 13 year old cousin Olivier and his tarte au sucre (sugar pie). Mother of pearl. Olivier makes one heck of a sugar pie.
The recipe is dead simple … some brown sugar, flour, corn starch, melted butter,vanilla, an egg and heavy cream.
It’s the kind of sugar pie that is sweet without being sickly so … and the creamy filling perfectly contrasts with the flakey pie crust. If you love your sugar pie … I think you should try Olivier’s recipe. It’s delightful ;0)
Plus I think it was super awesome of Olivier to come on the show and share his recipe with me.
Isn’t he A-DOR-A-BLE? Totally adorable. Je l’aime … beaucoup!
If sugar pie isn’t your thing … then I hope you caught Amanda’s key lime pie demo. First off … Amanda not only decided to make a key lime pie … but in true twisted chef style, she decided to shake things up a bit … by creating a creamsicle pie (orange and clementine custard filling). Both were delicious … and totally worth trying.
If you watched the show you’ll notice that Amanda and I had a few (ok … perhaps more than just a few) silly moments … I laughed while I watched myself hurt my finger trying to create a graham cracker crumb. Or when I confused a kinder surprise with a smashed orange (my aunt was howling with laughter at that one).
If you’re enjoying the show … don’t forget … BONUS VIDEOS!!! You can watch Amanda’s twist on making whipped cream here. I am really digging these bonus videos. A lot.
Don’t forget … you can tune in AGAIN on Wednesday at 8 am and 4:30 pm (or Saturday at 1 pm) and catch must.love.pies. all over again on Roger’s TV channel 22 in Ottawa …
