Categories: Events

Editor's Note: We've had more bakers sign up since this post went up this morning -- and we'll tell you about that in days to come -- but one we need to tell you about now is Virginia Senior of Urban Beans, who was left off the original list for no good reason! Chow Bella apologizes for the error.
The second annual Pie Social won't go down 'til November 12, but the line-up of celebrity bakers is already looking pretty sweet.

We've got old friends and a couple newcomers competing for top pie honors at the event co-sponsored by Roosevelt Row and Chow Bella. The deadline for signing up isn't until August 26, so if you bake in a commercial kitchen, sign up (or at least ask a few questions -- some answers are here) by emailing Amy at amy.silverman@newtimes.com.

Even if you are strictly a novice baker, there's still plenty of space for you at the table -- just show up Nov. 12 with two pies in exchange for five tasting tickets.

Get a few rules and find out which Valley bakers are on the menu so far -- after the jump.

​We're still finalizing rules vis a vis the county health department, but this just in: No meat or cream-based pies will be allowed this year. Get going on those fruit recipes, people!

And get a gander at our line-up so far: Veronica Arroyo, Bourbon Steak; Justin Beckett, Beckett's Table; Tammie Coe, Tammie Coe Cakes; Tracy Dempsey, Tracy Dempsey Originals; Slade Grove; Tonya Saidi, Mamma Toledo's Pies & Homemade Desserts; Honey Moon Sweets; and Traci Wilbur, Pie Snob.
