To celebrate the launch of her latest book, Martha Stewart’s Pies & Tarts, Martha hosted a small gathering last night in the West Village. Crowded into the Little Owl space – which will also be the home of her two-day pop-up pie shop this Saturday and Sunday – media, friends, and food personalities joined Martha to toast what is certain to be another successful book. Ed Levine, Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs from Food 52 were in the house, along with the so very handsome Johnny Iuzzini – swooooon!!!!!
It was a perfect event, with plenty of wine, punch and sweet and savory bites, to celebrate the launch of what I think is a perfect cookbook. With 150 recipes featuring everything from classic apple pie to the most elegant crème brûlée tarts, it offer tips and fail-proof instructions for the novice cook and inspiration for even the most advanced entertainers – it’s truly a must-have resource for the home cook.
