This is a lovely, short film about pie-making at Ed & Kay's Restaurant.  The billowing meringues are absolutely amazing.
 
The film is from Southern Foodways Alliance, and the article says they'll be publishing more pie interviews in the future!

Thanks so much for the link!  It looks like they will be doing several more of these in the near future and I can't wait!

For my taste, it's too much meringue.  More is not better (I used to preach that to my cooks constantly).  My mother won many pie contests in PA.  She won first place for her apple pie and second place for her lemon meringue in a state competition.  It was the perfect balance of light meringue and tart lemon in a melt-in-your-mouth crust.  Divine!

Well, from a taste standpoint, I tend to prefer balanced, too.  However, there's something very fun about extreme food, too, and these meringues are impressive!  Kudos to your mom on her accomplishments.

Ladies from Arkansas are blessed with special gifts...when it comes to making pie.
