It’s time to show off what you can do with a pie!
We are hosting our 4th Annual Bake Bethesda A Pie Contest at Bethesda Central Farm Market on Sunday, September 1, 2013!
Our Bake Bethesda a Pie Contest has become an exciting annual event. Last year over 45 participants entered very creative and delicious pies in two categories, Sweet and Savory. The contest is open to kids (8-17) and adults (18 and older). Over 200 spectators watched the 2012 judging and eagerly anticipated the announcement of the prizes and the cutting of the pies! After the judging, the pies are sliced and given to the spectators for tasting. The crowd goes wild for pie!
The pie contest is open to amateur bakers only and the contest is free to enter, but there is a $5 donation required per pie entry that goes to the Manna Food Center.
“The Annual Bake Bethesda A Pie contest has exceeded our expectations. There are so many talented bakers that enter their delicious creations that it is hard to choose a winner. Everyone has fun and we raise a lot of money for Manna. It’s a win-win for everyone”, says Co-Founder Ann Brody Cove.
The judges are all food professionals and this year’s judges are Aviva Goldfarb, the founder of the dinner planning service, The Six O’Clock Scramble; David Hagedorn, who had a 25-year career as a chef and restaurateur before becoming a writer, and whose columns in The Washington Post have included Chef on Call, Real Entertaining, Sourced and The Process; and pastry chef extrodinaire Ed Lichorat.
