Fearless Foodie:

Pie Contest and Devouring to Benefit Redeeming Hope

Bake it, take it. Buy it, eat it. This is a great pie proposition: you can either bring a pie, homemade, including the crust and at least one local ingredient. Or, ante up $7 and eat the pies of others. It's a delicious event to help Redeeming Hope Ministries, the folks that run Food In the Fort, offered by Slow Food Knoxville Thursday, Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. 

Here are the details:

Can you bake a mean pie? Show us! 

Come join us for our 2nd annual pie tasting and bakeoff !This year's event will be held at Redeeming Hope Ministries in the Fort Sanders neighborhood. All proceeds will benefit Food in the Fort. 

Pie categories are best sweet, best savory and audience favorite. Winners will take home lovely prizes from our favorite local businesses. Judges are last years winners! $1 buys a vote for audience favorite. 

Entrance is a pie or $7 to eat pie. To qualify for the contest, all pies MUST be homemade with at least one local ingredient. Store-bought crusts are not allowed! Pies will be judged based on external characteristics (shape, surface), internal characteristics (texture, crust) and flavor. 

REMINDER: we strive for zero waste events. Please bring your own place setting (plate, utensils and drinking glass/mug).
