"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
This is a family favorite made by Aesop's 96-year-old great grandmother. She learned by watching her mother and then experimenting on her own. She's always sure to have a couple of apple pies when we visit 'cuz Aes's Dad will eat one on his own. She even sent him one for his birthday! The crust is tricky and takes some practice but is well worth the effort. Thanks for this great one, grandma!
