  • The Little Book of Pies

  • Want to know how to make a pie? This little book of pie recipes packs a big punch in flavour and baking know-how.

    Comprehensive guidelines show how to make pastry - shortcrust, rough puff, tartlet and flaky; how to crimp, lattice or plait your pie for a perfect finish; and how to store and reheat your pies so that not a crumb of your pie making goes to waste.

    Savoury recipes include classics like Steak & Guinness Pie and Chicken, Leek & Bacon; seasonal treats like Waldorf Salad, Minute Picnic Pasties and Porky Pies; plus Mediterranean-inspired twists such as Italian Sausage & Pesto, French Onion Soup Pie, Lamb, Lemon & Oregano and Turkish Breakfast Pie.

    Indulgent sweet pie and tartlet recipes include classic Twin Peaks Cherry and Apple pies plus unique Honey & Walnut 3-Bite Pies and Chocolate, Date & Ginger Tart.

    Pies rule! They look good, taste good, and pie-maker Marika Gauci (who also runs the only Pie making workshops in London) shows just how to get glorious golden pies baking in your oven.

Marika Gauci grew up in Cardiff, learning to cook with her Welsh mother and Greek father. Regular trips to Corfu as a child taught her about the importance of fresh ingredients and simplicity of flavours. Marika moved to London with her Indie band in the 1990s and went on to produce and run music events all over London. In 2009 she set up Marika's Kitchen, a cookery school featuring the only pie-making classes in London.
