Pie-making tips from a national pie contest champ

Hosted by

Now that we've covered competitive pie eating, it's time to move to competitive pie-making. Our next guest, Evette Rahman, has won eight blue ribbons at the American Pie Council-sponsored National Pie Championships, including best-in-show. Listen carefully as she joins us from her own bakery, Sister Honey's in Orlando, Florida, with some helpful insight into how she prepares for the big day. You can find Rahman's pie contest cheat sheet, plus a recipe for her award-winning Lemon Blueberry Blast Pie on the Good Food blog.

Register for KCRW's 8th annual Good Food Pie Contest, which takes place on October 2 at UCLA's Fowler Museum.

CORRECTION: In the audio, we mention that Evette has won 10 blue ribbons at this year's National Pie Championships, however the correct number is eight blue ribbons.
