Do you think you (and your pie) are the main slice?
Here’s one way to find out: Go to Enid’s Restaurant (560 Manhattan Avenue) on Sunday, October 21st 2012 for the Tenth Annual Apple Pie Contest. Last year about 50 local bakers brought their apple pies to the contest. We had boozy bourbon apple pies, homestyle double crust pies and many, many apple pies laced with tasty bits of bacon.
Anyone can enter Enid’s Apple Pie Contest, and everyone is welcome to come by and check out the pies. Open pie call is from 5:00 – 5:45pm, and judging will begin promptly at 6:00pm. The only rule is that pies must contain apples and crust, and no ‘accessories’ like sauces and creams can be submitted. Apple Pie only!
Brooklyn Kitchen co-owners Harry Rosenblum and Taylor Erkkinen have judged the pies year after year, and this year they will also be joined by Millicent Souris, Brooklyn Kitchen’s resident pie instructor. Angela Thurmond, our 2012 Smorgasburg-Daisy Flour pie contest winner (it was a showstopping lemon-lavender pie) will also be a judge this year.
There will be food on sticks, seasonal drink adventures, and thrilling prizes from local vendors, so it will be a good time for everyone who attends.
All everyone talks about is apple pie, but I have been traumatized in my attempts to make crust! It’s so hard and while it always tastes great, it looks horrible. If anyone wants to take me under their wing and teach me how to make a good pie crust – I am all yours. Or I’ll just walk down the block to Pie Corps and pick up a pie.
In the meantime, when we have buckets if apples, I make this recipe for Traditional Viennese Strudel! It is somewhat more complicated to make than pie crust and takes more time, but it’s a lot more forgiving.
It’s not too sweet and requires not much sugar, but it’s definitely heavy on the butter, and I’m not complaining!
