Cake may claim birthdays and weddings, but thanks to the hungry folks over at New Times' food blog, Chow Bella, the pie is getting its time to shine. Pie Social is a sweet helping of Valley chefs serving up their take on the traditional tart from caramel apple to cherry espresso.
This year's all-star lineup includes: Eddie Castillo, Suzanne Gwyn, Dana Stern, Jeff Kraus, Marisa Lown, LaDawn Driscoll, Julie Moreno, Lindsey Magee, Katherine Dwight, Country Velador, Dana Dumas, Tracy Demspey, Amanda and Corianne Sizemore, and Karen Olson. Pie Social takes place from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, November 16, at the Ro2 Lot, 1005 North Second Street. Community bakers can exchange two homemade pies of their own for five tasting tickets or simply purchase five tasting tickets for $10.
