We've got old friends and a couple newcomers competing for top pie honors at the event co-sponsored by Roosevelt Row and Chow Bella. The deadline for signing up isn't until August 26, so if you bake in a commercial kitchen, sign up (or at least ask a few questions -- some answers are here) by emailing Amy at email@example.com.
Even if you are strictly a novice baker, there's still plenty of space for you at the table -- just show up Nov. 12 with two pies in exchange for five tasting tickets.
Get a few rules and find out which Valley bakers are on the menu so far -- after the jump.
We're still finalizing rules vis a vis the county health department, but this just in: No meat or cream-based pies will be allowed this year. Get going on those fruit recipes, people!
