Dozens of different pies on restaurant menus from the Delta to the Ozarks await hungry diners, and almost every delectable creation is a masterpiece of southern baking.

About the Author:

Kat Robinson is Arkansas's food historian and most enthusiastic road warrior. The Little Rock-based travel writer is the host of AETN's "Make Room For Pie; A Delicious Slice of The Natural State" and a committee member for the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame. The author of Arkansas Food: The A to Z of Eating in The Natural State, Kat has also compiled the comprehensive travel guide for pie lovers, Another Slice of Arkansas Pie: A Guide to the Best Restaurants, Bakeries, Truck Stops and Food Trucks for Delectable Bites in The Natural State (2018). Her other books are Arkansas Pie: A Delicious Slice of the Natural State (2012), Classic Eateries of the Ozarks and Arkansas River Valley (2013), and Classic Eateries of the Arkansas Delta (2014). She is the Arkansas fellow to the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, and the 2011 Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism Henry Award winner for Media Support.

Her work appears in regional and national publications including Food Network, Forbes Travel Guide, Serious Eats, AAA Magazines and AY Magazine, among others. While she writes on food and travel subjects throughout the United States, she is best known for her ever-expanding knowledge of Arkansas food history and restaurant culture, all of which she explores on her 1200+ article website, TieDyeTravels.com. 

Kat's journeys across Arkansas have earned her the title "road warrior," "traveling pie lady," and probably some minor epithets. Few have spent as much time exploring The Natural State, or researching its cuisine. "The Girl in the Hat" has been sighted in every one of Arkansas's 75 counties, oftentimes sliding behind a menu or peeking into a kitchen. 

Kat lives with daughter Hunter and partner Grav Weldon in Little Rock. Grav Weldon is a freelance photographer and digital medium artist living in the hills of northwest Arkansas with his books and cats. His work can be found in Cat Fancy, Arkansas Wild and numerous other publications.

Review:

In the book "Arkansas Pie," travel and food writer Kat Robinson takes us to all four corners of the state to explore our deep love for this old-fashioned dessert. Robinson sampled more than 400 different varieties of pie, learning interesting histories and traditions along the way. From fried pies and fruit pies, to cream pies, chocolate pies and even possum pies, this book covers it all. Plus, it's also chock full of stories, photographs and recipes (like Ashley's Brown Sugar Pie and Brown Sugar Custard) and a directory of "Great Arkansas Pie Places." It s a must-read for any true Southerner or pie lover. Available locally at Wordsworth & Co. and other booksellers. --Little Rock Soirée
