Last night was an epic night of cooking, eating, drinking and laughing. I hosted the first DIY pie club of 2011 (and first ever DIY pie club) and I'm feeling super pie enthusiastic and keen to keep the pie making up.
Pie course 1- Homity Pie from the cranks cook book, with a peanut butter base.

I'm so happy we have been invited back to the Maker Faire this year. We have more pie-themed activities in the pipe line and we're just about to start putting the second D.I.Y. Pie zine together and compiling our favourite pie receipes, how-to projects and pie related quotes and poetry. The Maker Faire has been going since 2009 and is part of the Newcastle Science Festival which is held every year. There is always an amazing program of science-based ar exhibitions, events and talk for adults and children and is well worth a visit. After taking part last year we had a brief chance to meet with the other makers, including a robot inventor and there are a few makers we're really looking forward to see again.
I'l leave you witha very fitting a pie-related quote from everyone's favourite science hero:
"In order to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe."
