Miss Parolee’s Pie Co. to be featured on PBS

Local bakery gains 
attention of TV host

SPRINGFIELD When art teacher Gail Grant retired after 35 years, she never imagined she would still be doing something she loved.

Grant, the manager of Miss Parolee’s Pie Co., started her business in 1996 with the intent of being able to financially support her ailing mother who required constant supervision and home health care.

Her mother’s technique and love for cooking ultimately inspired her and helped her gain a love for baking.

“Mom was always baking for us,” Grant said Tuesday, Oct. 14. “She made my dad a dessert almost every night.”

Just last month, Grant attended the Country Living Fair in Columbus, where her booth of treats gained the special attention of a PBS television program titled “Lifestyles with Rebecca.” A film crew from the show spent the day at the bakery, located at 1407 W. Perrin Ave., on Tuesday.

The program is geared toward spotlighting individuals who have changed professions in order to better their own lives, or in Grant’s case, the life of someone else.

Hosts Rebecca Ray Smith and Michelle Luciano travel around the nation interviewing individuals about their new professions and why they chose to make the initial switch.

For Grant, her motivation is the joy she brings to those who eat her baked goods.

“I just enjoy making people feel good like my mother did,” Grant said. “For me, baking is a way to do that.”

Tom Jacobs, executive producer of the program, expects to see Grant’s feature on the program in five weeks.
