Early Sources of Ins-pie-ration

DRAFT COPY UNFINISHED

Periodically will post pictures and links to other people's pies or artistic techniques that have inspired and awed me. And as always, if you know of a great pie out there I should check out, list it in the comments or send me a message / tweet / instagram / FB whatever etc.

Here are 3 piemakers blew me away when I was first getting started...

 

Jo Harrington (aka Jojoromancer) is a longtime London Foodie who has challenged herself to create 3 pies a week which she posts on her epic instagram account. Her pies are a constant source of inspiration for me as I strive to up my game (how she gets those braids so tiny without cracking I'll never know!)

 

A selection of mini Strawberry, Lime and Cardamom Pies. I lucked out at Waitrose - they had stacks of strawberries reduced to pretty much nothing, as they had reached their "sell by" date. Still in perfect condition though! Haven't done minis for a while, so this was fun. ?? #pie #strawberry #lime #cardamom #piecrust #pieart #pastry #baking #bakes #marthabakes #foodstagram #mykitchen #yahoofood #homebaked #fromscratch #thekitchn #feedfeed #f52grams #foodwinewomen #thatsdarling #lovebaking #red #nofilter #gloobyfood #eatmorepie #pocketfood #jojoromancer

A delightful pair of strawberry-raspberry black bottom pies. The larger of the two has a wonderful chocolate-espresso pastry dough blend as well. Not only is this a delicious flavour pairing, but the colour is just so pretty too. Inspiration is all around you. Your pastry is a blank canvas waiting for animation. Try to capture what you see and re-create it. Maybe the beautiful pattern on some linens, or the silhouette of flowers in your garden. Pie artistry is endless. You can only be stifled by the limit of your own imagination✨✨. #ganache #raspberry #strawberry #lovechocolate #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #pie #piecrust #eatmorepie #kristinscreativeworksbaking #buzzfeast #foodphotography #tastespotting #eeeats #pastry #pielover #pielove #foodpics #forkfeed #fromscratch #lovebaking #baking #bakingday #foodgawker #thekitchn #ourplatesdaily #epicurious #liketocookit #beautifulcuisines
