Kat Robinson has done it again -- Another Slice of Arkansas Pie: A Guide to the Best Restaurants, Bakeries, Truck Stops and Food Trucks for Delectable Bites in the Natural State published last month by Tonti Press -- is sure to please pie lovers and Arkansas travelers. From well-known and long-established diners to restaurants, barbecue joints and gas stations -- if it serves pie in the state of Arkansas, it's likely in this book.
The 300+ page book divides the state into regions, creating a spiral on the map: Northwest, North Central, Upper Delta, Lower Delta, Lower Arkansas, Southwest, Ouachitas, River Valley and Central.
The book is definitely more travel guide than cookbook, but it does feature 33 recipes, including such favorites as Franke's Egg Custard Pie, Ed and Kay's PCP (Pineapple, Coconut Pecan) Pie and Myrtie Mae's Homestyle Dining Possum Pie. Each entry includes the basic details (address and phone number), a description of the atmosphere and types of pies served and in many cases, a brief history of the establishment or mini bio of its owners.
For more information or to order, visit arkansaspie.com. Books ordered at the website will be signed by Robinson and include card detailing stops along one of Arkansas' Pie Trails.
