Bakeries are full of wonderful things: smells, sweet possibilities, friendly bakers who sometimes wait on you. A lot of work has usually gone into the sometimes soft, crunchy, salty, icing-covered products for sale, and the purchases you make often result in satisfaction and happiness. Celebrate all this oven-baked artistry in the hour-long documentary from PBS producer Rick Sebak (A Hot Dog Special and A Ride Along the Lincoln Highway). Check out unusual offerings at Mahoroba Japanese Bakery in Sacramento, and marvel at the small pastry made at Sluy's Bakery in Poulsbo Washington; known as a Viking Cup, it's the perfect treat to take on the ferry to Seattle. Consider beautiful baguettes at Standard Baking Company in Portland, Maine, and sit with the morning regulars at Bernice's Bakery in Missoula, Montana. From a tiny workroom with a nearby wood-fired oven on Martha's Vineyard to a well-equipped bagel bakery in Juneau, Alaska, visit the people who own, work, shop, and sometimes linger in these special neighborhood spots.
There's something tasty, often sweet, fruity and all-American about a really good piece of pie. In this delicious documentary, travel across the country to visit shops, restaurants, cafes, and even a few homes in search of some excellent crusts, crimping, fillings and flavors. PBS producer Rick Sebak (A Hot Dog Program and A Ride Along The Lincoln Highway) and his crew travel from Portland, Maine for blueberry pie to Seattle, Washington for an original Blue Hawaii pie. They find coconut cream pies outside of Pittsburgh, some truly impressive domed apple pies in northern California, and in Vermont, the women at Poorhouse Pies who keep a pie-shed well stocked so pie lovers can get baked goods at all hours. From central Virginia to western New York, people are making and selling pies that impress, and in Indiana, everyone knows and loves the official state pie, the sugar cream, even though the rest of the country hardly knows it exists.
