Writer Pascale le Draoulec moved from California to New York for a job and decided that a roadtrip would be the best way to explore the country. But in order to really discover the “heart of America,” and the locals who inhabit the small towns, she decided to turn her trip into a quest for the ultimate piece of pie. Pascale has written about her cross-country adventure in her new book, "American Pie: Slices of Life and Pie from America`s Back Roads."
