Savory Pies9781612431062.01We didn’t eat a large variety of foods when I was growing up.  Instead, we relied on some of my mom’s favorite childhood meals.

When I lived in the co-op, I was exposed to a variety of different foods.  One of my favorite meals was chicken and broccoli turnovers.

I love the idea of having one meal all wrapped in a flaky crust.  Yum.

If you, too, love all in one meals enveloped in a flaky crust, you’ll likely enjoy Savory Pies by Greg Henry.

Book Details

This cookbook includes a variety of recipes for many different lifestyles.  If you’re gluten free, the author even includes a recipe for gluten free crust that you can use in place of the other crusts in the other recipes, so you don’t miss out.

Vegetarian?  Not to worry.  there is a large section of vegetarian recipes.

Are you an adventurous eater?  There are recipes from around the world included.  Some of the tasty ethnic recipes include Duck Ragu Pasticcio and Irish Breakfast Pie.

Many of the recipes also include fresh vegetables, so I’m looking forward to trying even more recipes once we start getting our CSA.

I love pictures in cookbooks, and this cookbook doesn’t disappoint.  Every recipe has a full-page glossy photo.  I love that!

The only drawback to this cookbook is that the recipes are a bit time consuming and labor intensive.  Save these for the weekend when you have more time or on a less busy day.
