Well here goes...

Of course I love a good pie. Who doesn't right. I should be a judge because I have a cool song on my blog about a pie. It's practicably destiny. But seriously I'm married to a chef and I know great food.

Now isn't that a pie in your face! =)

I would like to nominate my friend Corey for the following reasons:1. He is an aspiring bodybuilder/health nut on a freakishly strict diet and Saturday is his "cheat day"2. He says he "will make that apron look good"3. He is culinary trained with 6 years cooking experience (including pastry) so will understand what he's tasting a little better than most.4. I advertise my business with the New Times and will become very upset and pull all my ad money if you don't meet my demands : )- Email me at eytan@phoenixknifehouse.com

Honestly, there aren't too many reasons I would concede in judging a pastry cookoff, but I can distinguish between "sucky" flavors, and somewhat appealing ones. If I get to devour a few hundred pies, free at that, count me in.

I humbly submit my request to be a Pie Judge. Here are my list of qualifications:

1) I love a good cake. It's very rare that I've come across a pie that can knock cake off that pedestal. I suspect this event could be the Holy Grail of Pie I've been searching for.

2) I actually have that day off. YAY ME!

3) I sure could use an apron. Many pairs of pants would be saved, which would equal less laundry to do, which would save water, which could lead to SAVING THE EARTH. Well, maybe. It's a start.

4) I'm wondering what variety of pies are there? Sweet pies? Creamy pies? Savory pies? Pocket pies?

5) With a Pie Social, there's always a chance of a pie fight to outshine anything the Marx Brothers & the 3 Stooges could ever dream of doing.

I have absolutely nothing creative to say except that no one likes pie as much as I like pie. Srsly.

I should be the pie judge because pie was banned in my house as a child, and I... love... pie

When i was young (about 2nd grade), my father, the family chef and baker entered a 4th of July pie competition in our neighborhood. He lost. I will always remember how much better his pie was than others, and HE will always remember that the judges made it clear he didn't win because he was a man and they wanted one of the women to win. He banned pie in our house and from his life (an amusing if drastic over reaction). I spent so long sneaking my fix when i went to dinner with friends, or it was the desert at school. I finally moved off to college and love baking pie but still feel a tinge of guilt over it.

I should be the final judge because I love pie.

Sure, the word "love" has, disappointingly, become cliche, an emotional platitude on the order of "no new taxes"...

To me; however, the word "love" is a crude tool, one incapable of capturing the ecstatic reverence I feel when bitting into a sublimely balanced combination of flaky crust and sweet/savory filling. It completes me in ways incomprehensible to Jerry McGuire. It fills my soul with the joy of living and sings a siren's song of a life devoted to just one thing...finding the perfect piece.

Being a judge for a pie bake-off is directly related to my personal philosophy of life: I see beauty in knowledge, and I eat it up! In fact, and this is no joke, when I was a kid, everytime I was excited because I learned something, I would get hungry for the food that sated my body, while the "food" of knowledge sated my mind. I have a tutoring website (www.excellenceinacademicstutor...), and if you look, my logo is a symbol of what I believe: knowledge is seductive, so like the apple that fell Adam and Eve, my apple liberates by eating it! And, speaking of apples, let me mention my love for them in pies! My appreciation for food and the gluttonous pleasure it offers is another reason why I should be a judge. My interests know no boundaries, and by being a judge for the pie bake-off, it would convey to society that a curiosity for all things is rewarded with just desserts, and pie is my favorite! Thank you for your consideration!

I am a downtown resident. So with that you already know a few things about me. I love diversity, variety, and choose the best (neighborhood that is). Last January I hand picked over 1,500 lemons and have since made Lemon Meringue Pie all year long. I host "Pie Thursday's" in my neighborhood and always carry a spare Pie Bird with me incase a spontaneous baking opportunity arises.I look forward to serving as a pie judge.

I should be a judge because I was lost in a bakery as a baby, but then I was adopted by and raised by a pack of pies. I spoke pie until I was 14, and had to learn English in one of your human schools. The only time I ever feel truly at home is amongst pie.

I should be a judge because:1.) I'm a true "foodie"and have an appreciation for all things pie. 2.) I'm pretty sure I'm Paula Deen's long lost daughter, she's the only one who loves butter more than me, and well what's a good pie crust without some butter??? 3.) I've been on a freakin' diet for just under a year, down 85lbs and this would give me a great and perfect excuse to eat some pie. - yes I look for any excuse to eat pie, but if it comes with a snazzy Chow Bella apron, even better. 4.) There's gonna be pie...did I mention I love pie? Sorry was having a #fatgirlfoodiemoment PICK ME! email me at ilovepieandpielovesme@gmail.com <3
