Even if you don't qualify for the celebrity chef category, there's room for all. Community bakers can bring two pies (no meat or dairy, please) and get five tasting tickets in exchange. Tasting tickets will be sold for $15 for five. Proceeds from this year's event will benefit Phoenix Union Bioscience High School, Arizona School for the Arts, Hance Park Conservancy, and Roosevelt Row CDC.
We do have a couple of spots left for celeb chefs who can make their pies in a commercial kitchen, and bring 15 pies to the event. Email Phoenix New Times managing editor Amy Silverman at email@example.com by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, October 11, if you're interested.
