Pies (and tarts, quiches, and more) with a purpose from celebrated Chicago baker and star of Netflix’s Bake Squad, Maya-Camille Broussard
“No one understands the power of forging human connection through baked goods better than pie-queen Maya-Camille Broussard. This new classic has me racing to my cupboards to bake something up.”—Christina Tosi, chef and founder of Milk Bar ONE OF THE TEN BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR: Simply Recipes ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR: Bon Appétit, Los Angeles Times
In Justice of the Pies, Maya-Camille Broussard shares more than 85 recipes for sweet and savory pies and other mouthwatering creations that put her social mission–based bakery on the map, including her famous Salted Caramel Peach Pie and Brandied Banana Butterscotch Pie, as well as hearty renditions like the Fig + Pig Quiche and Roasted Brussels Sprouts + Cherry Tart. Maya-Camille also tells the stories of heroes outside the kitchen: luminaries who strive for social justice and equity, and shares recipes they’ve inspired. Maya-Camille’s bakery was launched in honor of her father, who was a criminal defense attorney and had a deep love of baking pie. Through her bakery she proves that good work and delicious decadence can go hand in hand.
