A Few Good Pie Places

There's something tasty, often sweet, fruity and all-American about a really good piece of pie. In this delicious documentary, travel across the country to visit shops, restaurants, cafes, and even a few homes in search of some excellent crusts, crimping, fillings and flavors. PBS producer Rick Sebak (A Hot Dog Program and A Ride Along The Lincoln Highway) and his crew travel from Portland, Maine for blueberry pie to Seattle, Washington for an original Blue Hawaii pie. They find coconut cream pies outside of Pittsburgh, some truly impressive domed apple pies in northern California, and in Vermont, the women at Poorhouse Pies who keep a pie-shed well stocked so pie lovers can get baked goods at all hours. From central Virginia to western New York, people are making and selling pies that impress, and in Indiana, everyone knows and loves the official state pie, the sugar cream, even though the rest of the country hardly knows it exists. Discover these delicious treats and more in A Few Good Pie Places.

This is a wonderful documentary about pies and the incredible bakers around the USA. My bucket list would be to have the time to visit everyone on this video and try every pie with my son who is addicted to pie!

What a fun show! Beautifully filmed, thought appetite provoking. If I were a baker, I would have been super motivated. Instead, I was just hungry!!

I loved the way this video shows the everyday people who decided to go into the pie business and how theyre doing after even a short time. Very inspiring.

Easily one of the most enjoyable programs Ive ever seen

You know... Americans are pretty cool people by and large and this program proves it. State after state, the people who bake the pies are warm and friendly and the kind of person youd like to have for a neighbor. My Czechoslovakian grandma on my grandparents homestead place near Fromberg, MT knew a thing or two about baking pastries. My Mom was the same way... and this program took me back to rolling out the pie dough at age 7 or so... because I just wanted to help. Thanks to all the great people in all the little pie shops across the nation for what it is you REALLY do with your pies...
