Last summer I made the blueberry pie you see above and, running late with no time to let it cool, wrapped it in a towel, shoved it in a tote bag and headed out to Brooklyn. By the time I had crossed the East River, my towel and tote were soaked through and stained with blueberry juice. If only I had had a PieBox!
PieBox is a simple, lovely pine box that snugly fits one pie. Pie plates are awkward to carry, so I'd love one for taking pies on the subway or to picnics. Plus: pretty! I'm not usually into single-use kitchen items, but this could carry brownies, simple cakes, and anything else you'd like to avoid putting in ugly plasticware. I'm sold. Thanks for the tip, Kate!
