Caption: My aesthetic for pies is inspired by . color combinations hi i'm lauren co from . loco kitchen and i make geometric and . colorful pies i started the loco kitchen . instagram account in august 29th really . it was just a holding place for my food . photos i was becoming that friend who . was flooding her personal account with. food photos and just really needed a . separate holding place for those photos . before this whole craziness i was an . executive assistant . and saw some cool pie pictures on . pinterest and wondered if i could do it . myself so ventured out and the plaid . lattice pie on my feed was the first one . i made my aesthetic for pies is inspired . by geometric patterns string our . architecture a lot of textiles and color . combinations so when coming up with pie . designs. i never sketch things out i don't really . plan them in advance of results of the . pie are usually having fun in the . kitchen and seeing what the dough is . willing to do or the fruit if it . cooperate the feedback to my instagram. account and some of the photos that i've . posted have been really really positive . i think one of my favorite comments was . somebody saying that their partner and . understand instagram at all but when. he's in a bad mood or having a bad day . she'll show him some of my photos and it . kind of soothes him and calms him down . which i think is pretty funny . yeah just lots of positive comments i . love seeing people out there trying to . recreate some of my designs it's wild . that i'm just having fun in my home . kitchen and somehow these things are . getting out in the world and people are . doing the same thing in their kitchens . as well the rule is always to keep . things super cold so make sure your. dough is chilled to try not to handle it . too much so my designs are constructed . with lots of strips of dough so i try to . only touch the strip's from the ends . once the pie design on top of sitt chill . it in the fridge thoroughly before . baking for the local kitchen signature . spoke design that's inspired by some . string art designs that i saw and . because the design is constructed of . lines i wondered if i could reconstruct . it with pie dough just cutting the dough . into strips and laying them on the . surface of the pies and sent out to . experiment per usual and it turned out . well one of the first pies i made i . brought to thanksgiving. at my in-laws house and i had made this . beautiful intricate top was super proud . of it it looked awesome and lo and . behold it was completely undercooked and . runny and it was just mortifying sitting. at the table it was the one dessert and . everybody in the family it was just . really kind and generous and insisted on . eating and i had to sit there totally . mortified and embarrassed you know i . kept baking and through experimenting. and practice i've gotten a little bit . better i had this idea of making colored . pie dough and it was just kind of . floating around in my head and i tried . it out why freeze-dried raspberry powder . it colored the dough a really kind of . scary color still put it up joked about . it and a chef actually commented on that . photo and suggested using beet compound . butter she actually emailed me and kind . of walked me through the steps of . constructing this beet compound butter . and substituting beet juice for the. water in the dough recipe and yeah it . worked out really well the dough color . came out very vibrant there are a couple . people on instagram that i've met . through the platform now that i'm deep . into pies one of them is joe harrington . she's based in london i think she's one . of the original instagram pie ladies and . she makes these really beautiful pies . out of floral and leaf cutouts just by . the magic of the internet we've kind of . become friends and she's been super kind. super generous with her platform was . always advocating for me and just kind . of cheering me on which i find really . inspiring that the community can be so . collaborative and encouraging . yeah it's just another testament to how. this instagram platform has reached . people all over the world and how people . have been really kind and responded . really positively and sharing their own . knowledge with me as well my husband's . his role is usually not super hands-on . occasionally if i do attempt a weaving . pattern or some kind of kaido pattern . and i get stuck i'll have to call in my . life consultant and have him kind of . figure out the pattern and tell me what . my next steps are otherwise he kind of . keeps out of the kitchen lets me do my . thing. usually i prefer making tarts because i . also prefer to eat them for the tangy . zesty flavor but i think they're a . little less time intensive and there's a . lot more creative freedom with tarts so . i think my family and friends are all . really excited to see what's happening . with my instagram account and the way . that it's completely exploded i did have . to explain how the instagram platform. worked to my parents and a lot of family . and i will say a lot of people have . gotten new instagram accounts just so . they can follow me had to walk them . through the process of how to like a . photo how to leave a comment but for the . most part i think they're all super . excited to see this things that i'm . creating being shared all over the world . so when i'm cutting out shapes for tarts . or you know cutting out cubes of fruit . for pie fillings there's a lot of. leftover some edges some bits i usually . stick those in a freezer ziploc bag and . save those for smoothies later for extra. pie dough anything that i trim or any . extra leftover pie strips and i usually. sprinkle those with either cinnamon . sugar or parmesan cheese and bake them . up and they become my fries . so i don't usually work with fresh . things like apples and pears for tarts . because they do brown really quickly i . keep those ingredients for pie fillings . instead what i find easiest is working . with fruit that's not overly ripe fruits . that are more solid i guess like green . or mangoes firmer kiwis dragon fruit . things like that are easier to work with . and you're able to get sharper edges out . of those cuts . i think it's something that's really . intimidating but anybody can do it i . started with a sharp knife and a cookie . sheet for cutting straight edges and you . know i don't have a lot of fancy tools . that i use or any fancy recipes let's. just get in the kitchen do it and see . what comes out and have fun oh yes . .
