It was a difficult choice: the apple pie or the New York-style cheesecake?
Both sat in front of me, looking succulent on separate plates, on the counter at Liberty Pies & Cakes in Madrid. I pushed my coffee aside to study this opportunity.
We were in the middle of filming a report about Burton Novack, an American expat in Madrid whom you might call an unusual entrepreneur.
In the midst of Spain's economic crisis, he opened a shop two years ago to make and sell American-style pies and cakes.
Unusual because he's an octogenarian. He looks pretty fit. He says he still plays tennis. He certainly still drives because I took a ride in his car from the shop to his office, where I met his large parrot.
