Third Annual Pie Contest + Leela Cyd’s Hygge Cookbook Party
December 9 @ 3:00 pm$25.00
Be a part of Santa Barbara history in the making! The contest will begin at 3pm sharp on Saturday, December 9 at Potek Winery. All proceeds of the event will go to the Santa Barbara Food Bank a non-profit dedicated to providing nourishment to those in need. Judging will take place from 3-3:30, followed by merry making, pie eating, cocktail sipping, and checking out Leela’s latest cookbook, Tasting Hygge. The entrants are required to register here by Saturday, Dec 9 and must bring two pies (of the same design); one for official tasting, the other to be enjoyed by guests. Entrants must arrive with their two pies between 2:30 and 3pm in order to qualify for the 3 o’clock judgement. Guests may arrive any time – pie eating will begin at 3ish, as our judges are tasting — guests will be tasting as well. Winners will be crowned at 4-4:30. Purchasing your ticket here is your registration.
The judges will taste and score using a highly scientific rating card, giving entrants a number from 1-10 rating crust, filling and overall presentation/creativity. Pies will be assigned a number and presented anonomously, to ensure complete objectivity. Guests who do not have a pie to enter, but would like to join the festivities (and taste the spoils!) are encouraged to donate $15 at the door.
