Serious Entertaining J. Kenji López-Alt 11 comments

March 14th is International Pi day, though if math were truly a universal language as they say it is, we'd be better off calling it Universal Pi Day. You know what else speaks to everyone across cultures, borders, and even species? Pies. Nobody doesn't love pie. At least, nobody worth inviting to your next dinner party. In the spirit of International Pi Day, we offer you an entire, soup-to-nuts, all-pie feast. More

March 14 is a very important day for both math people and pie people (and who doesn't fall under at least one of those categories?). Pi Day (3/14) not only celebrates over one trillion digits past the decimal point, it also gives people like us another excuse to eat pi's buttery crusted homophone. Need pie recipes? Both savory and sweet, we've got you covered. And it's not too late to enter our 2012 Pi Day Bake-off contest! More

Sweets The Serious Eats Team 19 comments

Is there such thing as too much pie coverage of Pi Day? We clearly didn't think so. Here are our favorite pies in the country. From banana cream to olallieberry to peanut butter—it's all here. We didn't venture into the meat pie genre, however. We'll have to save that for next year. More

The 15 Best Pies in Arkansas

Sweets Kat Robinson 13 comments

You never know what sort of pie you'll get in Arkansas: fruit, cream, chess, meringue, fried or icebox. But chances are, it's going to be good. Narrowing down the best pies in the state wasn't easy (as pie, har har) but in honor of Pi Day, we figured it was the right time to address this question. More

Happy Pi Day Pie! Make a Pi-Shaped Pie

Serious Eats cakespy 6 comments

There is some disagreement over when to celebrate Pie Day. Some (including the American Pie Council) cite January 23 as the day, the reason allegedly being that the digits of 1/23 are "easy as pie." Others (generally math nerds) say it must be March 14, or "Pi" Day. Of course, this is a very silly argument, because really, it's an opportunity to enjoy pie on two separate occasions. More
