Visions of sugar pies dancing in your head, ever since our Pie Social last month?
Us, too. We're still reeling over the fact that hundreds came to taste, bringing more than 200 community pies. And 10 professional bakers/chefs competed for top pie honors.
In the sugary hubub you might have missed the sets of celebrity chef recipe cards for sale -- just $10 for 10 recipes, including Justin Beckett's winning fig and pecan pie, and Slade Grove's sugar cookie cream pie, which nabbed the people's choice award.
There are a few sets of recipe cards left, and we're biased but we think they make pretty sweet holiday gifts. Buy them at MADE art boutique, 922 N. 5th Street (5th and Roosevelt). Proceeds benefit the non-profit Roosevelt Row association, the group that brings you little shindigs like First Friday. Oh yeah, and Pie Social.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
