Tori Says...I met Greg, the talented blogger behind Sippity Sup, at a local food blogger's meeting two years ago. We've been friends ever since. I was thrilled when he announced that he was working on a new cookbook about pies-- the savory kind, not sweet. Fast forward several months later, and the book is now available for purchase. How time flies! Savory Pies includes a diverse collection of savory pies from around the world. It's not a kosher cookbook, so those of you who keep kosher will not be able to use several of the recipes here. For the rest of you, you'll enjoy recipes for seasoned meats, vegetables and cheese baked inside perfectly flaky pie crusts.
Start with your favorite foods. Add zesty spices. Bake inside a buttery, flaky crust. Serve and enjoy your creative, delicious dish, including:
Tomato Caprese Tart
Braised Short Rib Shepherd’s Pie
Chicken Pot Pie
Asiago Mac n’ Cheese Pie
Duck Confit Taquito Pies
Jerk-Spiced Caribbean Meat Patties
Bite-Size Beef Wellingtons
Chickpea Samosas with Spicy Mint Sauce
Sweet Potato Tarte Tatin
Crawfish & Corn Turnovers
Chicken & Pistachio Phyllo Triangles
Garlic and Rosemary Pizzettes
Sausage and Red Pepper Polenta Cobbler
Panang Vegetable Curry Pot Pies
Rustic or elegant, pies draw people to the table. Savory Pies is a diverse collection, packed with flavors from around the world. . From comforting classics and innovative pastries to delectable hand pies and eye-popping creations this book presents a treasure-trove of gourmet recipes. Featuring stunning full-color photos, complete step-by-step directions, and techniques for the perfect crust every time, Savory Pies shows that making mouthwatering meals sure to please any palate is as easy as pie.

A must own!, By Jackie Dodd
December 21, 2012
I had almost forgotten about savory pies (why do we seem to only make dessert pies?) until I got this as an early Christmas present. I read the entire thing like a novel with a glass of wine. I've tried two recipes so far (yep, in just two days!) and both were home runs! This is a great resource if you are having a dinner party or going to a potluck. I've also bookmarked several for my Sunday Supper tradition I've made a resolution to start next year! I hope the author comes out with another book soon, I'm a fan already!

A delicious inspiration on every page. Creative and thoughtful recipes to make and share. The photos are gorgeous and I only wish there was a photo for every recipe. I am always challenged with pie crusts, but the first one I tried out of this book came out perfect. I highly recommend it!
Savory Pies, By Edward Martinell 'Concerned Grandparent'

Got this great book for Christmas. I have been cooking for so many years, I've gotten sick of food. I needed something new to break the monotony. I own about 50 cook books and I'm always looking for something new to jazz up our menus. This was what I needed. Easy to cook, serve and the presentations come out great if you follow the recepies. I tried the Salmon, and my fish came out looking pretty good, if I do say so myself. Not only good to look at, but great tasting. The wines recommended were an excellent addition for someone like me who is always confused about what wine should go with what. Kudo's to the author(s). It says the author is a professional photographer as well as a writer, and thats obvious when paging through the book. I had some left over dough and I'm trying a new receipe tonight. I highly recommend this book to someone who is looking for something new and tasty to give to your family at mealtime.
