Announcing Book Release Date: September 21, International Day of PeaceWant a sneak peak of WORLD PIECE, my forthcoming memoir? Read the introduction. In 2015, I traveled around the world making pie to promote goodwill and cultural understanding. Pie, an American symbol of comfort and kindness, provided me with an entree into people’s kitchens, cafes and homes. From New Zealand to Australia, Thailand, India, Lebanon, Greece, Switzerland, Germany, and Hungary, I immersed myself in each place, exchanging recipes and stories. We are all connected no matter what color or language we speak, and we can use those connections to bring peace to the world. Below is a short film I made about my journey. My film is like homemade pie — it’s not perfect but it’s made with love.
