January 23 is National Pie Day, according to the American Pie Council.
“Created by the American Pie Council, National Pie Day is dedicated to the celebration of pie.
“As part of our American heritage, this day is a perfect opportunity to pass on the love and enjoyment of pie eating and pie making to future generations.”
It reminds me of those wonderful French confréries established to protect recipes and promote consumption of all sorts of food and drink. (Here’s more…)
So I say, what better day to make a pie! If you’ve never made a pie, why not take a deep breath and decide to join the club on January 23?
If you’re an experienced pie chef, delight your family with a favorite pie.
This is sure to be a sacred holiday in my household!
