Yeah, so what if it’s cold? It’s summer! And summer means pie. Or die!

Get off your butt-pie and join us on Sunday, July 25th at Stable.

SF Food Wars’ “(3.14159 Delicious) PIE OR DIE (ameter)” will challenge 20 master pie-makers to unleash unto us flaky crusts and luscious fillings. Remember, you + pie = yes.

Should these pies boast fruit, chocolate, creme, or custard, one rule stands clear: they must fall into the “sweet” category. We’re all for creative add-ins like herbs, spices, and such, but flavor profiles will lean toward sweet. So you think you have the perfect pie persuasion equation down pat? Read on below for competitors’ entry details.

$14 gets you through the door and into the official pie zone where your vote counts! So all you pie-a-holics, mark yer calendars for Wednesday, June 30th at 12PM noon when tickets go on sale.


Do you make delicious pie? Do you not want to die?

You must be prepared to bake a lot of pie and said pie must err on the side of sweet! Timeliness and enthusiasm are key because we will select our competitors within just a few days.

*Food for thought: Imagine serving sample-size tastes of your pie to a large audience. How does everyone get to taste your pie at its best? How can you maneuver things to make sure everyone appreciates both the crust and filling? Traditional round pan-based methods may or may not be ideal…just some food for thought!
