I've been doing a slew of signings and demos for my new pie cookbook, Pies and Tarts with HeartThis weekend, I'll be doing a signing and demo at Paris Vegan Day. [Check out shots from my 2011 demo here.] Two weeks ago, I was at Williams-Sonoma in Philly. Last weekend, I was at my favorite cook shop ever, Fante's, in Philadelphia's Italian Market. I brought this Pumpkin Pie for customers to taste. I'd say 99% of the store customers who tasted it were omnivores, and everyone loved it. In fact, I did a little experiment and didn't tell them it was vegan until after they tried it. [Meniacle laughter] You can find the recipe in my book and an older version here.
I bought many of the supplies photographed in my book at Fante'. If you are ever in Philly and you love cooking, you NEED to stop here. They have everything and they are the sweetest people ever. It's so awesome to see a family run business that's so successful in this era of box shop overload.
Kittee's recipe when I get back from Paris.
