A post from Grub Street has drawn our attention to the world of competitively gorgeous pies on Instagram, and they’re the rare food photo fad that is both visually stunning and something you’d actually want to eat. The piece particularly focused on the work of Lauren Ko, who has recently achieved some viral fame for…
Hello! I’d like to you take this quiz. We’ll catch up after you do.
Hey, would you like me to tell you about the most offensive dessert in the entire history of human sugar consumption? Meet this awful six-layer mashup of icing, cake and three different types of pies, ridiculously dubbed the “Cherpumple.”
You probably remember the Great Jezebel War of ‘10 over that most searing of questions: Pie or cake? (Please, no bloodshed.) Well, half a decade later, America will finally have an eatery devoted to that immortal dilemma. Glory be!
Modern Farmer put together a pie chart of pies by month and we all really fucked up when it comes to October. Why were we not eating apple pie every day and when we weren't eating it, talking about eating it? And if you were doing that, how come you didn't tell me? That is not the "leave no pie behind" mentality that…
An ode to pastry.

It's not luck, it's not fairy dust, it's not good genes. It's killing myself for an hour and a half five days a week, but what I get out of it…
Some people think that this year, 2011, is finally the year that the peaceful reign of cupcakes, the Clinton Administration of dessert trends, will end and a new era of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld pie-terror is upon us. Blasphemy!
I'm not saying we have to be sworn enemies. But as yet another cake-pie hybrid lands in our inbox, I feel it's my duty to inform all you dessert Utopians that...it's the League of Nations of desserts.
Food porn time! The new Dean & Deluca catalog features a dark chocolae cake, a fresh pear tart and tons of candy. Grab a fork!
