Karin Pfeiff-Boschek was born and lives in a rural area of central
Germany. Both of her grandmothers were avid bakers and influenced
Karin as a young child so that she began a baking career in her
early years. After meeting her US-born husband she became
interested in pie baking. Coming from the field of textile design
she began applying her training to the embellishment of pie crusts.
In less than two years her Instagram account grew to include 200 of
her edible art works and over 85,000 followers. As a skilled and
talented photographer she presents her pies in dramatic and
appealing photographs. In addition to baking and photography Karin,
together with her husband has completely renovated a 22-room abbey
in which they live.
"Picture the pie as a blank canvas for edible art-or at least that's the premise behind this gorgeous cookbook. And forget about the intimidation factor; the beginner chapter eases you into pie crust decor with only a few special tools (think cool cookie cutters). As the book progresses, so do your skills."
