This week I’ll be talking to Michele Stuart about latest book “Perfect Pies & More.”

After the success of Perfect Pies, National Pie Baking Champion (27 times!) Michele Stuart went back into the kitchen—the same kitchen in Vermont where she first dreamed up the award-winning creations that inspired her to open the popular Michele’s Pies shops. Returning there also meant returning to the cherished pies she learned to bake under her grandmother’s and mother’s watchful eyes, as well as the wonderful cakes, cookies, and other sweet treats that became their family tradition.

In her newest cookbook, Perfect Pies & More, Stuart delves deeper into her roots while creating delicious new memories made with love and care. Inside, you’ll find tantalizing recipes—some easy-to-bake, some requiring a bit more finesse—for dozens of her favorite fruit, nut, and cream pies, and so much more.  Learn more about Michele and Michele’s Pies at:

In the second half, Stephanie Honig, Sales & Marketing manager at Honig Family winery will join us.

Always a fan of this premium Napa producer, we’ll tell you all about the winery, products produced and the great track record for all their wines, especially the Honig Napa Valley Cabernet.  From 2007 through 2010 this wine has garnered 91-93 points from the Wine Spectator.  I look forward to trying the 2011 vintage on the show this week and talking to Stephanie.

Good Life Guy’s Wine of the Week:
2011 Honig Napa Valley Cabernet
This Cabernet is medium-bodied, with aromas and flavors of red cherry, and plum, alongside anise, black tea, vanilla, white pepper and dried herbs. The finish has the perfect balance of bright fruit, elegantly proportioned tannins, and a hint of cocoa powder.

95.4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4.6% Petit Verdot, Aged for 18 months in American oak barrels (1/3 new barrels)

Pick up a bottle at Jacob Liquor Exchange on North Rock Road and join me this Saturday!
