History of American Pies… and Illinois is Well Represented

March 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Pies are as American as pizza is American…we took a great idea, adapted it to our needs, and ran with it. Our ancestors used what they had available locally and made the most from it. You might be thinking that pies are just for dessert, but for our American ancestors, they were often considered survival food. Sometimes they ate pie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for months at a time.

Catherine Lambrecht, who achieved Grand Champion and Best of Show at Lake County Fair for apple pie, will present the history of pies in America and in our state. She will also share a story from the Family Heirloom Recipe Contest at the Illinois State Fair of love, family, a special pie, and a gift of immeasurable value.
