Spectacular Santa Barbara Pie Contest 2016

It's that time of year again! Contest co-host Leela Cyd and I are so excited to announce that the 2nd Annual Spectacular Santa Barbara Pie Contest & pie party will be at Potek Winery on December 3rd, 2016! We were rather overwhelmed by the incredible response to last year's contest, and we've been busy planning to make sure this year is even better. We are thrilled to be partnering with 805 Living Magazine (fun things coming in November), and are working away at organizing all kinds of wonderful new prizes with our sponsors, more awards (such as a juniors', People's Choice award, and more) and of course lots and lots of cozy pie time for all. 

Show us your recipe testing & follow along with #sbpiecontest. Don't forget that both sweet & savory pies are welcome! (Last year's Best in Show winner, Melissa Bishop, won with a lamb tagine savory creation). 

GIVING BACK
With your help we donated over $1,000 in proceeds to Transition House last year, and we're hoping to do even more this year. If you'd like to help us make that happen, we'd love to talk to you about donating prizes or volunteering to serve pie at the event. Contact us here to learn more.
