Do you think I could resist a cookbook with an endorsement from President Obama, who said on the cover, “I like pie. That’s not a state secret…I can confirm that the Red Truck Bakery makes some darn good pie.” There is also a rave from Oprah. And Jane and Michael Stern, The Roadfood Warriors. I better look into this, I said to myself, opening the pages of the Red Truck Bakery Cookbook. What’s going on in this place? The flagship bakery is on Main Street among the apple orchards and rolling hills of rural Virginia. And now, after the raves, there’s a second Red Truck Bakery. People drive hours out of their way to taste Brian Noyes’ Rise and Shine Biscuits, Mom’s Walnut Chews, his Shenandoah Apple Cake, and the item I crave the most—Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie with Chocolate in a Pretzel Crust. Come on! And now, in addition to this cookbook, Red Truck Bakery is online shipping its goods all over the country. We’ve sampled several of Brain Noyes’s cakes ourselves. Our recommendation this Mother’s Day: skip the flowers. Send mom a cake or pie from Red Truck Bakery instead. If mom prefers a homemade gift, see your options below.
