What do you do when your child wants something very, very special for a special occasion—and it just can't be found anywhere? In some cases, you go to extremes. In the case of Mary Jo Selig and Clare Thomas Williams, you start a company and make your own specialty macarons.
'Arkansas' on Serious Eats
Chris Monroe is a man with an obsession. That obsession is called Hunka Pie, and it's become the premiere pie stand in Little Rock, Arkansas. Usually you'll find anywhere from five to eight different pies on the menu. But a while back Chris came up with an unusual idea: he decided to bake 100 different pies in a single night for sale in a grand pie extravaganza the next day.
