— Cheryl Day, author of Cheryl Day's Treasury of Southern Baking

“So much more than a cookbook, 50 Pies, 50 States is the most touching story of love, discovery, and belonging, all through the lens of mouthwatering pies. You’ll want to bake all of them again and again!”
— Caroline Schiff, author of The Sweet Side of Sourdough

“50 Pies, 50 States is filled with deliciously unique pie recipes, such as Sweet Tea Peach and Ruby Red Grapefruit, as well as more traditional ones, like Mississippi Mud Pie. A love letter to every state, it is also the deeply personal story of Stacey’s journey to find ‘home.’ And we—her lucky ‘pie trip buddies’—can cozy up in the passenger seat and enjoy the ride.”
— Jessie Sheehan, author of Snackable Bakes

“Stacey's truly unique and personal exploration of pie through her life experience and creative vision is an absolute joy to read. Her inventive recipes are what making pie is all about: sharing diverse cultures, traditions, and favorite flavors with those you love.”
— Emily Elsen and Melissa Elsen, authors of The Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book

— Shelf Awareness

"Characterfully written and brightly designed and illustrated, this original book invites the reader to explore each state through its food."

— Delicious Magazine

"A fine example of how I wish more people approached writing cookbooks: by asking me to cook and eat a bunch of pie, but also by having an extremely unique, gripping, fun story to tell... I really hope she’s planning a sequel."

— Vice

"50 Pies, 50 States is so much fun to peruse, much less bake from. Fong’s travels across the country, meeting people and eating pie made me want to take a road trip, preferably in her passenger seat... The pies are amazing—Washington state is Rainier Cherry and Apple Pie with Potato Chip Crumble—and so is the author’s voice on the page."

— Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor
