do people know why it is pi day. the digits for pi start out as 3.141.............. so the date 3/14 has become known to math people and others in the know as Pi day. thought this might be of interest to some curious cooks

In Japan, it's White Day--made up by the candy manufacturers to increase sales. Everyone that received chocolate on Valentine's Day, is supposed (obligation?) to return in kind so White chocolate became the choice. Maybe White Chocolate Pie with PI symbol in middle?

Oh how fun, we should all make a pie and post pics. Something springy maybe? Too bad berries are not in season yet.

sdebrango, I did get a celery pie up--sorry I didn't make it in time. So easy to bake the thing, then uploading the recipe is 4X harder. (@^--^@)/
