On last week’s show, Christine Moore revealed how she caught the bug to become a professional baker. This week, we tap her for baking tips and a lemon meringue pie recipe ahead of KCRW’s “Good Food” pie contest, which Moore will once again judge on Sunday, October 2.
For the past two years, KCRW’s yearly pie contest has featured a “World Pie” category that is inspired by a current exhibition at UCLA’s Fowler Museum. This year, we give you the “Cuban Pie” category, a nod to the “Nkame: A Retrospective of Cuban Printmaker Belkis Ayón,” which opens on Sunday, October 2.
We are excited to announce this year’s panel of judges which consists of some of LA’s best tastemakers: 2016 James Beard Awardee for Outstanding Pastry Chef Dahlia Narvaez (Mozza), Meadow Ramsey (Sqirl), the Los Angeles Times’ own Jonathan Gold and test kitchen director Noelle Carter, plus many more!
After returning to Los Angeles from a revelatory trip in the Philippines, Isa Fabro started making desserts that pay homage to her Pinay roots. Watch this driven, funny 39-year-old Filipino-American chef make her signature isamadas for KCRW’s video team at Unit 120 in Chinatown’s Far East Plaza.
