From Briana Carson – Owner and PiEvangelist:
In 2010, after being laid off from a corporate job of 20 years, I decided to go to culinary school. I entered school with a passion for savory cooking and a complete disdain for baking. I dreaded taking Baking 101. I forged ahead though, and for the practical final exam I had to bake an apple pie from scratch. As fate would have it, that was a pivotal experience. I became entirely enchanted with all things pie!
I love the versatility of pie, and the endless possibilities that present themselves…from sweet to savory, and from season to season. After deciding that I wanted to devote my energies to pie creation, I left school and spent 9 months learning the craft.
Then, one day I received a gift that would change my life.
Just before my husband, Greg, was about to be deployed with the Army National Guard, he gave me a huge industrial sized garbage can with a bow on it. At first I was irritated to find a gigantic garbage can in my kitchen. Then I opened the lid and it was filled with professional pie making tools! I knew it was time to take action and follow my passion, so I put my trust in God and took a leap of faith.
And here I am today...spreading The Good News of Pie and trying to make the world a better place, one pie at a time.
