Emile Henry Pie Dish Giveaway

Enter to win an Emile Henry Pie Dish from  SHAPE’s 30th Birthday Giveaways Sweepstakes!

A good pie, which melts in the mouth, needs to be cooked evenly and gently, without drying out. The secret is the earthenware dish. The Emile Henry pie dish will make a beautiful presentation on your table while keeping your pie warm.

The concept of pie – as in apple, peach and blueberry – is almost an entirely American phenomenon. Rarely will one see a pie on a European menu. In France, “pies” don’t exist. One can order a “tart”, but it is impossible to find pie on the menus in French restaurants or in French homes. Ironically, it is a Frenchman, Jacques Henry of Emile Henry in Marcigny, France, who was granted a United States Patent for an American Pie shape. His design gives the traditional American dessert a uniquely rural, French perspective. The Emile Henry design features delightfully scalloped edges, reminiscent of the edge created when pie dough is fluted or crimped – a worthy aspect in addition to its functional capacity for both sweet and savory pies. It is an idea that was inspired by a turn of the century shape that Jacques Henry observed in an old photograph that graced a fireplace mantle in the family home. The Emile Henry pie dish, like all Emile Henry oven-to-table-ware, is a natural product handcrafted from Burgundy clay. The dish is highly resistant to breakage and can go directly from the freezer to the oven. The dish will not craze or discolor.
