The Recipes and Stories of a Big-Hearted Bakery in Detroit
hardcover, 246 pages
A bursting-with-personality cookbook from Sister Pie, the boutique bakery that’s making Detroit more delicious every day
At Sister Pie, Lisa Ludwinski and her band of sister bakers are helping remake Detroit one slice at a time from a little corner pie shop in a former beauty salon on the city’s west side. The granddaughter of two Detroit natives, Ludwinski spends her days singing, dancing, and serving up a brand of pie love that has charmed critics and drawn the curious from far and wide. No one leaves without a slice—those who don’t have money in their pockets can simply cash in a prepaid slice from the “pie it forward” clothesline strung across the window. With 75 of her most-loved recipes for sweet and savory pies—such as Toasted Marshmallow-Butterscotch Pie and Sour Cherry-Bourbon Pie—and breakfast goodies, cookies, and bakeshop salads, the Sister Pie cookbook pays homage to Motor City ingenuity and all-American spirit. Illustrated throughout with 75 drool-worthy photos and Ludwinski’s charming line illustrations, and infused with her plucky, punny style, bakers and bakery lovers won’t be able to resist this book.
