Kate McDermott to talk about pies — and life — in Port Hadlock

PORT HADLOCK — For years, the world’s culinary superstars have traveled to Kate McDermott’s legendary Pie Cottage in Port Angeles to learn pie baking techniques at her Pie Camps.

On Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., this nationally recognized pie expert will share her secrets at the Jefferson County Library, 620 Cedar Ave., in a free author’s talk about her publishing debut, “Art of the Pie: A Practical Guide to Homemade Crusts, Filling and Life.”

Known as “The Piechiatrist,” McDermott never dreamed that making mud pies in her backyard would be the first step to a James Beard nomination for her best-selling book, according to a news release.

At the talk, McDermott will share her story and answer questions about pie and life itself.

McDermott explained why the time had come to share her wisdom in a book.

“I want to pass on the craft of piemaking to as many as I possibly can,” she said. “Since not everyone can join me at my Pie Cottage baking counter, I wrote ‘Art of the Pie’ so I could ‘join’ others at theirs.”

All are welcome. Seating will be limited, so plan to arrive early to ensure a seat.
