Susie Q.'s comment:
"What a wonderful story and what a treasure Karen found in that attic those many years ago. How wonderful that she has kept her promise to herself and what a wonderful collaboration with Chef Callagari.

My grandmother, on my Dad's side, was a great baker, and I remember visiting her in North Dakota and helping her roll out the crust for this wonderful treat. My Dad, now 91 years old, is a retired fireman who was quite well known in the Los Angeles County Fire Dept for his lemon meringue pie. He wrote out the recipe for us, and my favorite part is his description of the meringue: "beat the egg whites until they are stiff, or looking much like calf slobber".
