The Third Annual Good Food Pie Contest was a roaring success.  Sixteen judges judged almost 200 pies in the Fruit, Nut, Cream, Savory and Tim Burton inspired categories and the contestants served their pies to an enormous crowd in the courtyard of LACMA.  Judges’ favorites included a savory Persian Tart and a traditional Banana Cream Pie, but the hands down winner was Stephanie Shaiken who made a Classic Apple Pie.  Stephanie won first place in the Fruit category and also won Best in Show.  If you didn’t get a taste of Stephanie’s Classic Apple Pie on Sunday you can find her pies here.
