Product description

Review

With the precision touch of a clockmaker, London chef Calum Franklin of The Pie Room, deals out fantasies crafted in flaky dough, egg-washed to the hilt, and filled with godly foodstuffs like potato dauphinois and caramelized onion or smoked haddock and sweet corn chowder. There is only one Pie Room, and it is here in all its steampiped and marbled glory, with Franklin's crack team of chefs, we get a peek into the particular madness of the British tradition of pie, its two-fisted appeal of practicality and frugalness (make a filling with humble ingredients, cover it with dough, feed people) and the glory of what the stunning summation of that comforting equation can truly be. - Thrillist

Calum is the pie king. - Jamie Oliver

There is no one else I know who has the passion, heart and soul for meat wrapped in hot water pastry. If you want to know how to make a pie, Calum is your go-to man! - Tom Kerridge

This book is everything I dreamt it would be - technically challenging, creatively mind-blowing and packed full of recipes that will make you salivate... Devour this book, read, learn and cook from the creatively talented Piemeister Mr. Calum Franklin. - Simon Rimmer

Chef Franklin will charm home bakers with this delicious glimpse into the pastry magic that happens in the 'Pie Room' at his Holborn Dining Room restaurant in London. . . Readers looking for hearty winter fare will want to give this a look. - Publishers Weekly

Chef Calum is not only inspiring a generation of cooks, but reminding a country of its remarkable culinary contribution. - Josh Niland

If you're in need of something to lift your spirits, look no further than The Pie Room by Calum Franklin. - Nigella Lawson

5.0 out of 5 stars This highly approachable book changes piemaking for the everyday cook
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 January 2021
The Pie Room is a fantastic book which has changed the way I view cooking pies from scratch. I'm a keen home cook but I have always put off pie making and pastry work as it has a bit of a reputation for being time consuming and fairly difficult to get right. Having seen the rave reviews that The Pie Room had been getting ever since it was published in September 2020, I had to add it to my collection and finally step into the world of pie making.

From the first page it is clear that the author lives and breathes pies and it's no surprise he has mastered the art. The book begins with the basics, the various equipment used throughout the book and the techniques to go with them including eggwashing, lining pie moulds and decorating your creation. It then moves onto a section about pastry doughs and this section is referenced throughout the various recipes in the book. Making pastry dough is a technical process but the author has laid this out in a very easy to follow format and always includes some commentary at the beginning of the recipe which makes for essential reading if you're going to get this right.

The middle sections include, as you would have guessed, all sorts of pies using all sorts of pastries, techniques and of course fillings. You would be hard pressed not to find something that you want to cook right away, and there really is something for everyone. When I think of pie my first thought is beef and onion, but pies can be so much more and the author has included some very modern recipes here which may surprise you. Not only pies but the book includes starters, accompaniments and sauces to go with them. A pie book also wouldn't be complete without some sweet dessert pies which are included towards the end. The recipes are very approachable and as long as you have some basic cooking skills you will be able to produce something really satisfying and rewarding even if you're a pastry novice like me. Having cooked from the book a few times now I am no longer intimidated by pastry work and I'm sure I'll be ticking off the vast majority of The Pie Room's recipes over the next few years.

The photography throughout the book somehow manages to take dishes and ingredients that are fairly humble at heart (pies, pastry, flour etc) and make them visually stunning. This is the perfect book for pie lovers and as soon as restrictions allow, I will be taking the Mrs to The Pie Room in London to try out their pies for ourselves and see how we stack up!

Pictures are of the Chicken, Mushroom and Tarragon pie (p.148). The filling really is sublime and I would recommend everyone gives this one a go.
