The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage is a gorgeous collection of essays about that big picture theme that’s behind every segment we air on Good Food – what we eat affects who we are. The book’s contributors share raw but self-aware portraits of the insecurity, existential questions and pure joy that food can elicit.

One of those stories is about pie. Lisa McNamara’s “Pie-Eyed” tells a tale of femininity and love, mediated in the oven.

Read the story below, and find her Apple Pie recipe here.

We hope McNamara inspires you to pull out some pastry dough – sign up for Good Food’s 5th Annual Pie Contest.  It’s happening Saturday, September 7th at LACMA.
