Pies (and tarts, quiches, and more) with a purpose from celebrated Chicago baker and star of Netflix’s Bake Squad, Maya-Camille Broussard.
“No one understands the power of forging human connection through baked goods better than pie-queen Maya-Camille Broussard. This new classic has me racing to my cupboards to bake something up.” - Christina Tosi, chef and founder of Milk Bar
In Justice of the Pies, Maya-Camille Broussard shares more than 85 recipes for sweet and savory pies and other mouthwatering creations that put her social mission–based bakery on the map, including her famous Salted Caramel Peach Pie and Brandied Banana Butterscotch Pie, as well as hearty renditions like the Fig + Pig Quiche and Roasted Brussels Sprouts + Cherry Tart. Maya-Camille also tells the stories of heroes outside the kitchen: luminaries who strive for social justice and equity, and shares recipes they’ve inspired. Maya-Camille’s bakery was launched in honor of her father, who was a criminal defense attorney and had a deep love of baking pie. Through her bakery she proves that good work and delicious decadence can go hand in hand.
Maya-Camille Broussard is the chef-owner of the satellite bakery Justice of the Pies in Chicago and the star of the Netflix show Bake Squad; she has been featured in Esquire, the Chicago Tribune, Thrillist, and on Today. Maya-Camille, who is a member of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community, strives to impact the world in a meaningful and positive way—whether it’s through community-based activism or through a perfect Strawberry-Basil Key Lime Pie.
“Chef Maya-Camille has definitely struck a nostalgic chord in this masterclass on all things pie. From sweet to savory to whoopie, Justice of the Pies should be required reading in home kitchens and culinary schools across America, and sets a new benchmark for preparing this endearing crowd pleaser.” --Kwame Onwuachi, chef, author, and actor
