When my friend Holly told me she was writing a book about Shoe Pastry, I was totally intrigued.
“What kind of shoes would make the best pastry?” I wondered. “And wouldn’t putting shoes in your mouth instead of wearing them on your feet (or in my case, hooves) make you kind of—well, sick?”
Since I am a zebra who is supposed to know at least a little about human food by now, I didn’t want to ask those questions right away. After all, Holly Herrick is a famous cookbook author. Instead, I had a great idea!
I have another friend named Holly, who happens to be a super-smart Golden Retriever—and spends a lot of time in the kitchen. I asked her about Shoe Pastry.
Holly the Golden Retriever said she’d never tried it, but she’d eaten lots of shoes (including some pretty expensive ones) and they were very tasty.
Still, I wasn’t sure—it just didn’t seem like you could (or even should) turn a shoe into a pastry. So I had an even better idea: I asked Holly the Famous Cookbook Author if I could interview her about shoe pastry. That way, it would make sense to ask lots of questions (even really silly ones)—so that’s what I did!
Guess what? It turns out I had the ingredients all wrong! You’ll find the right ones in the video below — and Holly Herrick’s awesome interview & recipe here!
