The World Needs More Pie

"Give a Piece a Chance." — Books. Blog. Pie Classes. And a Pinch of Activism.

How Far Would You Drive For Pie?

Another journey begins. I will make a 1,700-mile drive from Los Angeles to Des Moines, Iowa — all because of pie. To eat pie. Lots and lots of pie. Homemade pie. Competitive pies at the Iowa State Fair. When you think about the reality of this it makes you wonder, doesn’t it, just how much do you love pie? And how far would YOU drive for to eat it?

For the record, let me just say I’m driving my Mini Cooper to Iowa instead of the RV for this long trip. While I’m going to miss my feather bed and my espresso machine in my house-on-wheels, I am not going to miss paying for gas at eight miles per gallon.
