...4th of July...
...Pie Baking Contest & Auction!
Once more Beagle Books will host this delicious event in support of Park Rapids Area Library. But this year, there are some exciting new twists:
The American Pie Council will offer a “Lifetime Amateur Membership” to the Best of Show winner! This includes an invitation to the National Pie Championship in Celebration, Florida on April 27–28, 2014 where you could win the grand prize of $5,000 and a spot in the World Championships of Food Competition in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2014.
This year's July 4 prizes will include some amazing books: John Michael Lerma/Garden County Cooking will offer an autographed copy of America’s Best Pies, and one of Garden County Cooking Pie, and pie-focused Kitchen Bling (which will retail for $75.00).
Pie entries arrive in the morning and are judged before the annual 4th of July Parade in the afternoon. Contact Beagle Books or stop by for entry forms and additional information.
The event is listed on ChefMixer.com, so we may see some new faces. But we are confident no one can top our hometown bakers.
Enter a pie for only $5.00 if you bake, but remember the immortal words of John Milton:
"He also serves who only stands and eats."
