About the Event
Kat Robinson loves staying in the Culinary Suite at The Writers' Colony where she has the ability to spread out her supplies and cook, cook, cook and write, write, write. And since she's working on a book on Arkansas pies and is baking 50 pies each visit that must be eaten, we're happy to have her!
But even with staff and fellow writers in residence, 50 pies is a lot. So we're sharing the love with Pie Talk!
Savory pies will be served promptly at 2 pm. We'll have a screening of a portion of her PBS film Make Room for Pie. Then Kat will share with us about Arkansas pies. We'll finish up by diving into the dessert pies and a Q&A session.
Tickets are $45, include pies and refreshments, and must be RSVP's by February 15.
Kat Robinson wrote the book on Arkansas food: the 2018 compendium Arkansas Food: The A to Z of Eating in the Natural State. The Little Rock-based author and food historian is well known for her culinary travelogues featuring regional food including Arkansas’ most significant restaurants, mom-and-pop dairy bars, and where to find a great homemade pie. Robinson's most recent book, Arkansas Cookery: Retro Recipes from The Natural State, was completely cooked, photographed and chronicled in our Culinary Suite. The book includes 103 recipes from mid-century Arkansas church and community cookbooks dating from 1935 to 1985.
