Maya-Camille Broussard is the chef-owner of the bakery Justice of the Pies in Chicago and the star of the Netflix show Bake Squad. Maya-Camille, who is a member of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community, strives to impact the world in a meaningful way, whether it’s through community-based activism or through baking a perfect pie. Her new book, Justice of the Pies (Clarkson Potter, 2022) Maya-Camille shares more than 85 recipes for sweet and savory pies and other inspiring creations that put her social mission-based bakery on the map, including her famous Salted Caramel Peach Pie and Brandied Banana Butterscotch Pie, as well as savory renditions such as the Fig + Pig Quiche and Roasted Brussels Sprouts + Cherry Tart. Maya-Camille also tells the stories of heroes outside the kitchen: luminaries who strive for social justice and equity, and shares recipes they’ve inspired. Maya-Camille’s bakery was launched in honor of her father, who was a criminal defense attorney and had a deep love of baking pie. Through her bakery she proves that good work and delicious decadence can go hand in hand.
