National Pie Day
National Pie Day is a day of celebration for all pie lovers out there. Among the many delicious desserts that exist in the world, the pie holds a special place in the hearts of Americans. Now's definitely not the time to go on a diet!
23rd January is the day to go and get yourself a delicious slice of your favorite pie from pie shops around the country. Choose from dessert pies like honey pie or apple pie, or savory pies like meat pies. Enjoy buttery crusts, golden crusts, and the flakiest crusts you can find.
A History of Pies
The first celebration of pies was held in 1970 when the holiday was created by Charlie Papazian, who has the impressive credentials of being a nuclear engineer, brewer, teacher, and author. The pie itself is much older than its holiday of course. It's one of the oldest dishes dating back to ancient Rome.
Baking styles changed over the centuries and across the world. Meat pies first appeared in England in the 12th century. The sometimes strange origins of pie fillings gave rise to horror stories like the famous penny dreadful about Sweeney Todd that was later turned into a Broadway musical by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler.
