Celebrity Pie Judge


lemon meringue pie      Thanks to Beagle Books in Park Rapids, I have something new to add to my resume.  On July 4th, after signing copies of Shelterbelts, I was invited to participate in their annual pie contest as the celebrity judge.  There were five of us, tasting our way through a plethora of delicious pies.   A rubric kept us on track as we examined the flakiness of crust, taste and appearance of the filling and evaluated the ooze factor.   A peanut butter pie won out, as did a fantastic strawberry pie, but it was hard to choose.  The pies were judged first, and then auctioned off as a fund-raiser for the Park Rapids Library.  I hope they invite me again next year!  And just how do you think celebrity pie judge will look on my resume?

  1. What a very hard job! I bet real skill goes into that delicious competition! Which pie did you choose?

  2. Pie judging is an all American 4th of July event that will do wonders for your resume as a community supporter! I like how you put flakiness of the crust top of your judging criteria list.
