World Piece: A Pie Baker’s Global Quest for Peace, Love, and Understanding

“Part travelogue, part culinary adventure, part love story—and wholly delightful. You don’t need to be a baker, or even a pie lover, to enjoy this delicious book. Read it slowly, though, savoring the humanity found on each page.”
Eric Weiner, NYT bestselling author of The Socrates Express and The Geography of Bliss
