The Eye and the Pie

The Eye and the Pie.

A cook with the seeing eye will discover inspiration in the harmonious entirety of a graceful pie. To him its gleaming streamline epitomises the zenith of culinary piefection. The glowing russet of its crust suggests the crisp, curled leaf of autumn, poised to be plucked by the gentlest breeze, light and lambent with the imprisoned tints of summer. To such a cook that pie represents a concentration of piefold perfections. There is harmony in the sweep of its outline, imprisoned tranquillity in its fragrant depths, a sonata of scent awaiting rerelease, digestive inspiration poised to pounce, and mental gratification in a thing of beauty achieved with culinary cunning.
