Our pie baking contest is an annual treat. We love the gumption and creativity of those who enter, and the energy and spirit of those who come to support, ogle, and taste. On August 24th Mission Pie was abuzz with a spirited crowd of bakers and eaters, celebrating 20 unique pies. As always, it was a challenging—and delicious—decision for the judges. The winners of the 7th Annual Pie Baking Contest are:
Best In Show: Apple Ginger by Mac McKenzie and Christopher
Best Fruit Pie: Blueberry by Olivia Thomas
Best Excuse To Break Your Diet: Espresso Kalhua French Silk by Tracy Sengillo
Best Meal In A Pie: Curry Pie by Mark Shimahara
People’s Choice: Peaches n’ Cream by Ashley Lee and Curtis Lam
We’re looking forward to having Best in Show winners Mac and Christopher spend a day with us in the kitchen.
Special thanks to our Judges—Leslie Jonath, Alex Ryan, Raytrina Johnson, Jarrod Valentine, and Wan-Yin Tang—for their keen palates, and for eating so much pie.
See you next year!
