Pie Social

Virginia Senior is Betting on Pie Over Donuts

We're counting down the days to Pie Social 2011 -- 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 12 at 408 E. Roosevelt in downtown Phoenix. You can get in on the action yourself. Here are details for community bakers. And don't forget about our celebrity bakers -- today we're introducing the final name on our list, 
Virginia Senior from Urban Beans.

Virginia Senior is an artist who works in the digestible medium. We interviewed her earlier this year for Caramelpalooza where she shared her fear of beef and love of toffee.

Pie is the new donut because you know it's so comforting, but much much better than a donut.

Find out who Virginia would be willing to pie after the jump.

The hardest part about baking a pie is getting the apples to hold up, not turn mushy, and have a great texture.

The Phoenix food scene needs more originality and less mediocrity, reach high Phoenix!

When I'm not in the kitchen you can find me dreaming.

I'd like to throw a pie at the list if fairly long, let's start with every Bank Executive, Phil Gordon, Self Serve Check Outs at grocery stores, Sherriff Joe, and my next boyfriend for showing up so late.
