Savory Dinner Pies Review

Savory Dinner Pies: More Than 80 Delicious Recipes From Around The World

By Ken Haedrich

I received a free copy of Savory Sinner Pies from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

Author and savory pie expert Ken Haedrich takes you on a global tour of dinner pies from food cultures across the world. 
Dinner pies have become a favorite go-to for one-dish recipes. Perfect your own crust or, dare we say, buy a pre-made crust and the variations are endless. Learn how to make Classic Americana Chicken Pot Pie, British Steak and Ale Pies, Swedish Meat Pies, Italian Easter Pie, and many more crust and no-crust versions of one of the world’s most prolific go-to dinners. Recipes for a range of crusts and make-ahead ideas are included along with how to use the almighty leftover to create pie masterpieces that are all your own!
With 75 recipes and amazing four-color photography, this is both a cookbook and an around-the-world tour of culinary traditions that can be incorporated into your own home kitchen weekly menu. Great for parties, families, Sunday night dinners, neighborly welcomes, holidays, and any-old-night-of-the-week dinners, and breakfasts and lunches—Savory Pies from Around the Globe offer something for every kitchen.

Summary from Goodreads.

Pies, pastries, and quiches. If any of these interest you, then Savory Dinner Pies is the perfect book of for you.

Savory Dinner Pies is split into 7 sections with recipes separated in various different categories. How they decided each seperate category is beyond me, but they do make sense. An entire section is focused on pie doughs and pasties.

The other different sections include Pit Pies, Turnovers, Cobblers, Quiches and numerous more. While all the standard one are included, like Shepard’s Pie, you get some delightful different one that you may have never tried, like the Curried Chicken Pit Pie. Honestly I could just spend so many days just going through every recipe that is on offer in here and not get bored all winter long.

This book feels like a love letter to pies, and you will be better off for reading it.
