The World Needs More Pie. More Than a Philosophy.
In 2001, at the height of the dot com boom, Beth Howard quit a lucrative web producing job to bake pies at a gourmet deli in Malibu, California. While she enjoyed her newfound status as “pie baker to the stars” she couldn’t pay her rent on her baker’s salary. Still, she recognized how happy pie made people — watching Mel Gibson shovel a piece of her apple crumble pie into his mouth was proof enough! — and Howard knew there was no turning back. Now, no matter what she does for a living it involves pie. In her PIE BAKING PARTIES she teaches groups how to make pie. In her BLOG she writes stories about living the pie-life. Her book, “Making Piece: A Memoir of Love, Loss and Pie,” will be published April 1, 2012. And she is developing a TV SERIES about pie. Click here to view a promo tape for the PIE-LOT. Howard recently moved to Eldon, Iowa where she is the proud (and privileged) resident of the famous American Gothic House.
