This year’s pie contestants competed across a range of seven different categories ranging from Fruit, Savory, Cooked Custard, Cream, Nut and Vegan, along with a special “World” category. The competition was fierce, with so many creative entries submitted for each of the categories.
This year’s judging panel includes Pulitzer Prize winning critic (and cream pie aficionado) Jonathan Gold as well as pastry chef Sherry Yard and previous pie contest champion Nicole Rucker.
