2016 Book Festival Author

Jared Pierce, Carrie Simon, and Liv Svanoe have been cooking and camping together for nearly two decades. Their love of pudgie pies began in their respective scouting troops as youngsters where they learned to make pudgie pies of the white-bread-and-pie-filling variety. The trio's love of pudgery has since spawned Pudgie Revolution: Pie Iron Cookin' for Food-Lovin' Campers, which puts a gourmet spin on this classic campfire food. Jared, Carrie and Liv live by their "Pudgie Pie-losophy," which is that anything you can think of eating tastes better in the form of a pudgie pie!
