This Sunday isn't just daylight savings; it also marks the end of British Pie Week, and just so happens to be 3.14, or Pi Day! Rather than overload you with a bunch of saccharine pies, I thought I'd inspire you with a collection of sugar-free selections — some inspired by the cuisine of Great Britain, and others just downright unconventional, but all worth savoring. From steak and ale pie to barbecue chili pie, catch them all when you keep clicking.
This week would be the 280th birthday of Johann Heinrich Lambert, who proved that
pie was an irrational craving pi was an irrational number. So far, nobody in history has been able to explain irrational cravings for pie! In the meantime, I thought I'd whet your craving (and test your identification skills) for different varieties of this heavenly pastry. Do you have an eye for pie? See if you can match the pie to its name to find out.
It's March 14, better known as 3.14, or Pi Day. I wish it was pie day, but we'll take what we can get.
My gal geeksugar has rounded up a load of Pi Day paraphernalia, however I've found a few treats to inspire you in the kitchen. So for those of you geeky enough to get it, I present to you the Pi Pie. Created by Flickr member megpi, this awesome pie has the pi symbol cut into the middle and the numbers going around the outside. It's so clever, I'm bummed I didn't come up with myself!
The only thing that would make this pie better is if it was served in this Pi Dish ($24.95). This pi dish is trimmed with the first few dozen digits of pi, and would make any geeky baker's day.
