Craig Melvin slices into the history of pie in America | Family Style


Guest host Craig Melvin steps in for Al Roker to learn more about pies that are distinct to American cuisine. The journey starts in Minneapolis, where activist-baker Rose McGee gives away her highly sought-after pies through her nonprofit, Sweet Potato Comfort Pie, to create meaningful connections and inspire social change. In Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the Smucker family has been making shoofly pie, an ooey-gooey delicacy that can be traced back generations to their ancestors. In New York City, at Petee’s Pie Company, head baker Petra Paredez is serving up a taste of mid-century decadence and nostalgia in the form of a long-lost Christmastime pie.
