Pie Dish, Azur
DescriptionThe concept of pie - as in apple, peach and blueberry - is almost an entirely American phenomenon. Rarely will one see a pie on a European menu. In France, "pies" don't exist. One can order a "tart", but it is impossible to find pie on the menus in French restaurants or in French homes. Ironically, it is a Frenchman, Jacques Henry of Emile Henry in Marcigny, France, who was granted a United States Patent for an American Pie shape. His design gives the traditional American dessert a uniquely rural, French perspective. The Emile Henry design features delightfully scalloped edges, reminiscent of the edge created when pie dough is fluted or crimped - a worthy aspect in addition to its functional capacity for both sweet and savory pies. It is an idea that was inspired by a turn of the century shape that Jacques Henry observed in an old photograph that graced a fireplace mantle in the family home. The Emile Henry pie dish, like all Emile Henry oven-to-table-ware, is a natural product handcrafted from Burgundy clay. The dish is highly resistant to breakage and can go directly from the freezer to the oven. The dish will not craze or discolor.
