Renowned piemaker to demonstrate at CrabFest

Though her interest in baking took hold when she was a girl, it wasn’t until 2005 that Kate McDermott decided to get serious about pie making. For two years she studied pie crust, experimenting with different flours, fats, ratios and recipes until she hit upon the right combination for her signature Art of the Pie crust.

McDermott has been featured throughout the years in publications ranging from The New York Times to the Los Angeles Times, and from O Magazine to Food and Wine to USA Today, as well as in blogs and on TV and radio.

Her new cookbook, “Art of the Pie: A Practical Guide to Homemade Crusts, Fillings, and Life,” was nominated for a 2017 James Beard Award in Baking and Desserts.
