The Case for Squared Pie

zippo | Dec 24, 201410:42 PM

To Dan Pashman, the author of the book Eat More Better: How To Make Every Bite More Delicious and the host of the podcast The Sporkful, that default roundness is short-sighted. Pashman would like you to think outside the (circular) box. He would like you to take your pie ... and square it.

Why? Because crust. As Pashman explains in Eat More Better, the best bite of pie is to be had at the point where the vertical-side-crust meets the bottom-outer-crust. Because of their thickness, and because of their positioning within the construct of the pie itself, those pieces are, he claims, "ideally suited to absorb flavor from the fillings while maintaining toothsinkability."
