Evan Kleiman’s “Easy As Pie” App Makes I-Tunes Best of 2012 List

Over here at Good Food we aren’t exactly surprised that Evan Kleiman’s Easy As Pie app made itunes Best of 2012 list of ipad cooking apps. It’s a great resource for novice and seasoned pie bakers alike. If you haven’t already downloaded it, you can purchase it at a discount for a limited time via itunes. Or better yet, gift it to a friend this holiday season. Here is what LA Times Restaurant Critic Irene Virbila is saying about it

I love this app from Evan Kleiman of KCRW-FM’s “Good Food.” From the first view of Kleiman sprinkling flour on a board or gleefully smashing up graham crackers with her rolling pin for a crust, you know you’re in the hands of someone who loves to bake pies. And as your pie coach, she’s going to take the scary away and put the fun back into baking, holding your hand all the way. No strict school marm, she offers up the elements — crust, filling, topping — which you can put together any way you like.

With pie baking, it’s not enough to just read through a recipe: You need to see the motion of rolling out a crust, say, or cutting butter into flour and play it back again and again until you’ve got it. That’s the beauty of short videos. So, if you’ve always dreamed of making banana cream pie, high hat apple pie (which Kleiman considers the über pie) or a svelte lemon curd meringue, here’s your chance. She really does make it seem easy as pie through 20 recipes. If you didn’t have the chance to learn pie baking at your grandmother’s knee, this is the next best thing.
