Pie Day

by Matt on March 14, 2013

I’m busy packing for a quick trip to Vermont tomorrow (four words: Maple Syrup Everything, Please!) but in recognition of National Pie Day today I thought I’d post some shots we did last week in the studio. Leftover berries and fruit never go to waste with us! And yea, it’s a galette and not a pie, although they are pretty much the same in my book.

Hehe I’m celebrating by making a pizza pie tonight. I definitely think there is room for interpretation with this holiday. The galettes look delicious!!

Galette, pie…either way, it’s making me yearn for summer.

I always love your blog and photos… I am looking into making some pie ideas and noticed how flaky and delicious your gallete / pie crust looks… I was wondering if you shared your recipe for the douogh/crudt anywhere? Joey Munoz / NC

Yummy! I have to try making smaller size gallettes, I usually make a larger one (cherry) in my wood fired oven… Are you going to share your dough recipe? Happy travels.

Great photos. YUM! I hope you enjoy your trip to Vermont. I am in nearby New Hampshire: maple sugaring going on everywhere.

Just got back from a visit to my homestate…Vermont! The neighbors were beginning to tap the trees…and by now they’re probably boiling sap! Enjoy!
Ask them to boil an egg in the sap for you…my grandmother used to love those!

Such a beautiful combination of colours and I bet this pie tastes so good.

Matt, beautiful photos as always and these pies look amazing! Enjoy your trip to VT! :)

Ooh that looks delicious and very comforting on a windy day here down under.

I love the free form of the pie – it looks so organic and delicious and healthy….the photography is lovely with earthy tones too. I am feeling a little guilty now after making my moo cupcakes…as I want to eat more dessert now!!!

Love it

Being basically a carnivore I rarely have room for a sweet course at home and it is only when we go out to eat that I indulge. The problem is that neither of us is any good at pies or cakes, fresh fruit salad is my limit.

However, looking at your sumptuous photos we are tempted to give it another go, but as a standby will keep a box of ice cream in the freezer.

Great Site

Great photos, and those Pies looks absolutely Delicious. I think I’ll try making one this weekend.

Katie March 25, 2013 at 12:48 pm

I love the pictures. I can nearly taste the food!
Thank you!

These look seriously good… I am sure that those pies lasted only seconds… :) xv

It looks like pie, tastes like pie. That’s pie in my book as well.

I have always been a but nervous to make pies.
I love them but the making of the pastry was always a bit difficult I thought.
May be worth trying these as you make it sound possible (even for me)
I’ll let you know how I get on.
Bookmarked for reference and future pleasant reading as I don’t have time to explore everything right now.

Ooo your photos are so beautiful! I would like a slice now, please!

Crystal March 26, 2013 at 7:50 pm

Those pictures are beautiful! The crust looks super flaky too!

Let the spring begin. First time on your blog and can’t believe I didn’t know about it before. Consider me a fan already.

Very healthy all this red fruits. My greedy children will love especially the little touch of cream. I will just need to

Alan March 28, 2013 at 4:34 am

Call it a galette, call it a pie, call it whatever you want and i’m in. As a matter of fact, fresh fruit and pastry sounds so good I might even call it breakfast!

I have just found your blog and love the styling and the recipes!

Lenore April 9, 2013 at 8:03 am

Love the photos Matt, I’m inspired to cook and to create better images.

I love the negative space in this shot! (Just learned that term from reading your photography book cover to cover yesterday. ;) )

Caroline January 1, 2014 at 8:10 pm

So gorgeous! I love the lighting and that great backdrop. I wish you could take my photos for me! ;)
