I was beaming when my pie took first prize in the San Francisco Professional Food Society’s 1997peach pie contest, the year I joined. I had spent weeks refining the recipe to get the proportionsof filling to crust right, the crust flaky, and the filling to hold together with just the right type andamount of starch. That recipe sacrificed some flavor in the name of flakiness by using part veg-etable shortening. The farmers’ market spirit dictates all butter, however, which ensures a rich,flavorful crust. A bit of vinegar keeps it tender—you won’t taste it.More than anything, the success of the pie depends on the quality of the peaches. Select fruitthat is juicy and flavorful. Peaches with a tinge of red in the flesh make a beautifully rosy filling.
