    I really enjoyed reading this. not your usual cookbook. many stories about the North Shore & the Grand Marais culture. I've made a few of the recipes in my home & they tasted amazing. I really loved all the pictures of Lake Superior & all surrounding area. Kathy Rice really did a beautiful job capturing the lives of the people who live on the North Shore & who love to visit here.

    The Pie Place Café Cookbook is a wonderful regional restaurant cookbook with beautiful photography of local people and places. It is filled with stories of those people and places. The recipes are look delicious and can easily be made by a home cook. As part of reviewing this book, I made 3 of the recipes. I had blueberries on hand, so I made the Pie Place Blueberry Pie and the Wild Rice Blueberry Waffles. Both were delicious. I also made Pasta with Pumpkin and Sausage.

I had blueberries on hand, so I made the Pie Place Blueberry Pie and the Wild Rice Blueberry Waffles. Both were delicious. I also made Pasta with Pumpkin and Sausage. I was a bit hesitant about this entree as I have had too many pumpkin dishes that are too sweet. The little bit of heat from the sausage and the garlic really helped balance the dish. We really enjoyed it and I will be making all 3 dishes again. I hope to try a few more dishes in the near future. I received this book from the First Reads program.

    I love regional cook books like this; full of local charm and ingredients, along with the recipe titles only found in certain geographical areas. Although I have never been to "The North Shore", I enjoyed this book immensely. Great ideas for veggies. The local color keeps you turning the page while putting markers in the book for recipies you want to return to and make yourself. Quaint and adorable, along with useful (I have my eye on the smokey sweet potato soup)this gets a 5 star rating from m I love regional cook books like this; full of local charm and ingredients, along with the recipe titles only found in certain geographical areas.

    I was totally unimpressed. Part of this is my fault. I read the title of this book to be "The Pie Place Cookbook (food from the North Shore). When I hear North Shore what first comes to me is Hawaii North Shore, that is what I was expecting. Doesn't that sound so much more interesting? The cover of the book does not make you want to open the book to see what's inside. Then when you do .... there are some recipes (that do not sound good at all) the book is mostly a bunch of stories about the peop I was totally unimpressed. Part of this is my fault.

    I can't review this book because I helped to edit it, but Kathy Rice and the crew at The Pie Place Cafe are the sweetest people on earth. The food at the restaurant is great and this book is touching because it mixes good recipes with heartwarming stories of the people in this magical small town on the shores of the great Lake Superior. Just sayin'. I can't review this book because I helped to edit it, but Kathy Rice and the crew at The Pie Place Cafe are the sweetest people on earth.

    Kathy Rice's book goes way beyond my expectations of a North Shore cookbook. She tells stories about real people along with quite detailed recipes, folded together to make a compelling read. I read it in one sitting. The kind of book you hug when you've finished. Kathy Rice's book goes way beyond my expectations of a North Shore cookbook.

    Well this would have to be the only cookbook that brought tears to my eyes. This definitely gave me hope that there are still really good people in the world.
