Interested home bakers are invited to submit a sweet or savory pie to the 11th Annual Pie Baking Contest.
Contestants will be the first 20 people to enter. Current and former professional bakers are not eligible.
If you would like to participate…
— Please register before 5pm on the preceding Friday August 25th by signing up live, or at [email protected]
or 415-282-4PIE with your name, email and phone number. We need these three pieces of info to register you and we will confirm your participation by email.
— On Saturday, August 26, contestants must bring one whole pie and a list of ingredients to Mission Pie between 1:30 and 2:00 pm. Submissions without ingredient lists will not be accepted – this is a list, not a recipe, and intended to avoid allergen issues.
— A panel of judges will taste and evaluate each pie. Winners in a variety of categories will be announced around 3:00 pm. Feel free to bring friends and cheerleaders to the pie eating and finale.
While the judges are hard at work, you might choose to take a stroll in the neighborhood, visit a friend or run errands, go home and come back, or simply hang out at Mission Pie. At about 2:30, we will put pies out for contestants and enthusiasts to sample and the ceremony and announcement of winners will begin at 3pm.
Good luck, bakers!
