Bake Bethesda a Pie Contest
It's time to show off what you can do with a pie! On Sunday, September 2nd, CFM will be hosting it's 3rd annual "Bake Bethesda a Pie" contest, a fundraiser for Manna Foods Bank. We have over 37 amateur, but dedicated, bakers (adults and kids!) who will bring their fresh baked delicious sweet and savory pies that will be judged by some of Washington's top food professionals. Our panel of judges includes Joseph Poupon, pastry chef and owner of Georgetown's Patisserie Poupon, and Carole Sugarman, Food Editor of Bethesda Magazine.
The contest judging begins at 11 AM at Bethesda Central Farm Market, located at Bethesda Elementary School on 7600 Arlington Rd. Winners and prizes will be awarded at 12PM.
We guarantee, this is not an event you will want to miss. Best of all? After judging, everyone in the audience gets to taste the pies!
