Tomorrow I'll be heading to The Bedford in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for the Fourth Annual Brooklyn Pie Contest. I won't be baking, but I will definitely be tasting! My friend Jess from CookBakeLove has a genius creative pie planned but I don't want to ruin the flavor surprise... let's just say that the crust is porky and the filling is Frenchy.
Pies can be savory or sweet, and must arrive ready to eat before the 5:30 cutoff. The first 50 pies to arrive on the scene will be entered for judging, and any pies arriving after that are there for the eating! There are only two strict rules about the pies that can be entered:
- You must make the pie crust yourself from scratch.
- Pizza pies do not count.
The event is free if you submit a pie for judging, and $10 for all-you-can-eat pie tasting. They are raising money for Growing Chefs, an educational program to help people learn about gardening, farming, and the importance of local seasonal foods.
