The only calendar of its kind, the Colorado Pie Trail Calendar 2014 is a full-color, 12-month celebration of the state’s pies, pie-makers and pie shops.
Each month focuses on an individual pie-centric establishment – whether homey cafe or hip espresso bar located along the Front Range, in the mountains and on the plains. They all have one thing in common: Each makes pies from scratch and serves them in a warm, welcoming environment.
The Colorado Pie Trail Calendar 2014 features the only comprehensive directory of recommended pie shops, bakeries and restaurants across the state. Crust lovers can plot their personal pie trail from place to place. As an added bonus, the calendar includes an award-winning Key Lime Pie recipe. Colorado’s long and colorful pie-related history is related from early settlers to words of pie wisdom from Jack Kerouac.
Calendar creator John Lehndorff has been eating pie, baking pie, teaching pie classes and writing about pie for decades as an award-winning newspaper journalist, restaurant critic and food editor in Colorado. He is the founding executive director of the American Pie Council, head judge for the National Pie Championship, director of the Great American Pie Festival, and founding editor of the Pie Times newsletter. He has also been a longtime champion for National Pie Day, January 23, which was registered as a holiday by Charlie Papazian of Boulder in 1975.
