"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:
Dodie often talked about this pie. However, we never had the opportunity to taste it. I found this recipe in Blanche's papers.. Dodie loved to bake and pies were her speciality. Her full name was Sophie Jenkins Rubright. She died in 1987 at age 104! I tested this recipe March 2006, with compliments from the family. Intense lemon flavor, but well balanced sweetness.
