Brilliant Food Photography Meets Master GIF-Maker

Pumpkin Pie ATV Rider

If there is one coffee table book you stock up on for food-lover gifts this year, it should be Big Appetites by photographer Christopher Boffoli. Published earlier this fall, the $10 paperback (on Amazon) explores a world of tiny people who tackle full-sized food, like this Pumpkin Pie ATV Rider. Boffoli’s caption: "Professional Driver. Closed Course. Do Not Attempt." We wish we could drive across a mile-long pie, but decided to see the next best thing. In honor of F&W Pie Week, GIF-maker Trevor Carmick of Tumblr’s cult Beer Labels in Motion, animated Boffoli’s work (left).

F&W Pie Week

Deep Pie Thoughts

Pie Week is upon us. We're dedicating this week to all things pie. If you've photographed a favorite pie, either at home or out in the world, upload it to Instagram along with #FWpie and we might feature it on our website. And just in case you need some additional inspiration, here are five of our favorite pie quotes:

"Promises and pie crust are made to be broken." - Jonathan Swift

"Good apple pies are a considerable part of our domestic happiness." - Jane Austen

"If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe." - Carl Sagan

"When you die, if you get a choice between going to regular heaven or pie heaven, choose pie heaven. It might be a trick, but if it's not, mmmmmmmm, boy." - Jack Handy

"I like pie." - Barack Obama

The Ultimate Apple Pie Bucket List

Slightly North of Broad; Charleston, SC

For F&W Pie Week, we present the best apple pies in the country, from totally traditional versions with flaky crusts and cinnamon-spiced apples to deep-fried variations and others made luxuriously rich with caramel. The creator of this beauty at Slightly North of Broad in Charleston references Taoism and balance in everything he does. The apple pie pairs sweet Carolina apples with a tangy zip of sour cream and has an eggy pâte sucrée crust offset with a topping of crunchy, toasty walnut strudel.
