Forks up, Phoenix! Chow Bella and Roosevelt Row present the sixth annual Pie Social at 2 on Saturday, November 21, at the Bioscience High School at 512 East Pierce Street in Phoenix. We've got an all-star lineup of bakers making pies for you to taste, and from now till Pie Social, we'll introduce them to you, one by one through pie charts designed by each chef to capture his or her persona as a baker.
Today: Garrett Verhage of Grassroots Kitchen and Tap
Born and raised in Tucson, Garrett Verhage of Grassroots Kitchen and Tap spends most of his time eating cereal.
Okay, just kidding. But he does admit to eating "as much Cinnamon Toast Crunch as he can get his hands on," which we think is pretty close. He's an avid runner who enjoys cooking for his girlfriend. And before starting his career in the kitchen, he was a high school basketball player who led his team to the state championship. We'll have to see if his winning record continues at this baker's first effort in the Pie Social competition.
