This week F&W is shining the spotlight on pies. But this isn’t the first time the flaky confections have found themselves in the limelight. Here, five pies in starring roles.
Twin Peaks’ Cherry Pie
In David Lynch’s cult favorite series, agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) frequents the Double R diner where he gets a “damn fine cup of coffee” and a slice of cherry pie. He loves the diner’s pies so much that in one episode he declares, “This must be where pies go when they die.”
"Sweeney Todd’s" Meat Pie
The musical thriller tells the tale of Sweeney Todd, a blood-thirsty barber who slits his customers’ throats, and Mrs. Lovett, an enterprising pie maker who goes from making the worst pies in London to the best meat pies around thanks to a secret ingredient: Sweeney Todd’s victims.
