Rebecca Tosdevin was a new face this year at the 7th Annual KCRW Good Food Pie Contest for her Steak and Guinness Pie, which won Best in Show and first place in the Savory category. Always curious to learn the stories of our awardees and the inspiration for their creations, we invited Rebecca to the KCRW studios to talk pie.
Former British Michelin-starred chef-now-turned-restaurateur/butcher Richard H. Turner’s new book, Hog: Perfect Pork Recipes from the Snout to the Squeak, pays homage to the savory delights of his favorite animal. Flip through the pages of Hog, and you’ll find a handful of savory meat pie recipes, of course, as any proper English cookbook should include.
