    1. This is the second book in Edge s series about food The first was about Fried Chicken And I do think this second book was written better And I m not even a pie fan, but I found the information contained within to be interesting.Apple Pie is definitely considered all American There are so many variations from crumb toppings, to mock apple pie, to a flaky crust that everybody believes they do it the right way In this book, Edge goes around the country trying out different versions of the pie and m [...]

    2. I didn t have the words for my fondness for apple pie, though, until I read John Edge s wonderful book Apple Pie In it, he undertakes the quest for true apple pie, real apple pie, apple pie that isn t a can of pie filling in a thawed crust It s a journey that inspired me and that made me realize that, deep inside, I have a desire to learn to make a pie crust He writes with humor, but make no mistake this is a man on a mission and an important one at that Did I mention it s a short book and that [...]

    3. this was a totally delightful, quick read on one of my favorite topics in the world It was the perfect length I feel like many books of this nature get in a little too deep with quaint anecdotes with the perfect combination of technique and historical background I totally recommend it and can t wait to try some of the recipes, particularly FRIED PIE Oh, and how could I forget, he also discusses PIE FOR BREAKFAST

    4. I find Edge s narrative a little choppy and hard to follow at times, but this is the kind of history book I can really sink my teeth into Literally I wanted to eat something, preferably apple pie, after every chapter I also wanted to immediately go to my local farmer s market and abscond with all the apples so I could experience the text in my own kitchen I take that as the sign of a great book about food.

    5. Fun read, but not as exciting as fried chicken Mr Edge seems to have lost a little bit of wonder between books one and two, or apple pie just doesn t excite him as viscerally as fried chicken does He seems to approach the subject from a much academic bent Still very enjoyable, and a quick read, to boot

    6. Just as good this time as when I first read it John T Edge did a nice job of talking about apple pie as an American food and surveying the food scene via pie makers across the country A little book but a gem.

    8. Maybe I have read too much about pie This was kinda dull, sorry to say On the plus side, I DID crave pie the entire time I was reading On the negative, I was really counting the pages to the end And there weren t many.

    9. The prose was a bit too wordy for me at times It didn t match up with the simplicity of apple pie That being said, it was cool to hear about some regional and micro regional variations on a classic dish.

    11. I admittedly worship at the altar of John T Edge The guy sounds like Huckleberry Hound, but has some of the most interesting things to say during his exploration of what American food really is.
