The Four and Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book - Pie CookbookReviewing a book on baking may seem a bit unorthodox for Eat Like a Man. Tom Junod has persuasively argued that there are people who cook and people who bake, "But you can't bake like a man because men don't bake," writing that cooking is instinctive, while baking requires a surrender to instruction, an act that is dubiously civilized. I consider pie an exception. It still involves adherence to a basic recipe, but the best pies are made by those who understand what the dough should look and feel like, not those who execute exactly what's wrote. They have methods from countless experiments—adding ice water or letting the dough rest over night, working the butter into the flour with a pastry cutter or using their fingertips. Pie is a signature dish that stays in one perfect form until you can't help but tinker to find a higher perfection. And in that sense, it moves away from codified repetition and into the realm of instinct.
