As the saying goes,"that's as American as apple pie." We're calling all bakers to step forward and showoff! Whether its apple pie or anything else resembling the likes, this timeless tradition of baking a July 4th Pie can be appreciated beyond your white picket fence. You're encouraged to donate your BEST, from the tried and true family cookbook to the new recipe you've been secretly working to perfect all year. Your pie could earn you some Raymond recognition! Since we're also going to auction off the pies (minus one tiny sliver taken for the judges) to raise money, we'd like to offer you a huge thank you!
Here's what you need to know:
10:00-11:00 AMMake the drop (no, not literally) at the beer tent during this time. There will be a small amount of administrative paperwork so we know who to thank.
Please make sure you bring the pies in a disposable tin (they'll go home with the auction winner).
Should be homemade!
Don't add decorative items that weren't meant to be consumed.
Spend a moment or two to come up with a snazzy name for your pie.
Immediate family members of Alton Brown, Duff Goldman, or Rachael Ray are required to bring half a dozen pies, minimum!
Winners: Each judge takes their job very seriously and assuming they're able to pick a favorite, we'll announce the King or Queen of pie baking during the parade. To me, however, the real winner is the auction winners that get to feast on Raymond's best pies!
