In the kitchen with: Grandma Verna

There is nothing like Grandma Verna’s pie – light, flakey, buttery crusts and flavourful fillings, all created with her special touch. The bar has been set high in our family with her impeccable pies and she is always willing to share her techniques and secrets along the way.

Of course, we can’t come close to matching her pie perfection, but thanks to the blondewalk pie challenge, we are certainly getting enough practice!
