OK, “this” will be an uber cool event. It’s a twist on a pie eating contest. This is KCRW’s 3rd Annual “Good Food Pie Contest,” hosted this year by LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), and judged by several of LA’s best chefs and food writers.
For the past several weeks they have been accepting submissions from people wanting to get their pies into this event, these bakers are both pros and amateurs. That part of the event is now closed, so get ready for some good eatin’! This year’s judges are listed below...pretty stellar bunch;
Every contestant that has a pie in the Good Food Pie Contest will be expected to slice and serve their pie “sample tastes” to the crowd on the day of the event, this Sunday from 2-4P. Best part of this...is that it is FREE to attend. (And in a weird turn of events, the pie entrants had to pay $10 per pie they entered...wild, huh?! But, I’m not complaining...I’m just planning on eating).
And, it gets better...at the end of the event, the crowd will be invited to have a special “pie cocktail” for $10, that will be served by the Stark Bar at LACMA. Yummy!
Please, please, please....let the cocktail be the Keylime Pie Martini!
