Pie Queen Amya

pie-queen-amya

After several years doing PR work for Rikuzentakata, an Iwate Prefecture city that was horribly damaged by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, Amya Miller was looking for an outlet for her creativity and love of baking, which has been a part of her life since her youngest days. She was also looking for a way to help foreigners overcome their homesickness with tastes from home and to share American flavors with Japanese palates. She’s certainly found her groove with her Pie Queen Amya business, which she runs online and at farmers’ markets and other events.

Amya’s pie fillings come cradled in a rich, homemade buttery crust. Two of our favorites are her yuzu lemon tart and pecan pie: the tart has a unique zing and an extraordinarily rich flavor, while the pecan pie is sweetly indulgent.
