The first-ever Pie Social -- to be held Saturday, November 13, 2 to 6 p.m. at 5th Street and Roosevelt -- is right around the corner. While we wait, we are busy trying to flex our pie-baking muscles. We've never made lemon meringue pie before so this seems like the perfect time to try our hand at it.
Ok, but what about the meringue? There's just something a little intimidating about it what with its whipping and stiff foamy peaks of egg whites. It's a process that seems equal parts mystical and chemical, and ripe for disaster. We take our time. We keep our egg-whites cold in the refrigerator until just when they are needed. We hover over the kitchen-aid.
Just think what the local celebrity chefs lined-up for Pie Social might be coming up with -- we can't wait to see what they've got in store for us.
