Tue. Aug. 25 at 8pm and 9pm on WKAR-HD 23.1 | Come along on a tour of fruity and creamy pie shops and meet crusty and flaky cooks.

Watch two new PBS documentaries back to back titled A Few Good Pie Places and A Few Great Bakeries. WQED’s popular producer Rick Sebak and his three-person crew started shooting in Pittsburgh, where they visited local favorites Minerva Bakery in McKeesport and Grant Bar in Millvale. They then traveled to the Midwest, New England, the West Coast, and many places in between to check out other outstanding and unusual pie shops and bakeries.

Come along on a tour of fruity and creamy pie shops from Maine to Minnesota. Meet crusty and flaky cooks who know how to make dough, add spices to fillings and crisscross a lattice top. It’s a celebration of apple, berry and sweet potato slices!

Airdate Schedule:

A Few Good Pie Places  8-9pm
A Few Great Pie Bakeries  9-10pm
