Pie Social 2011 Winners Announced
And with good cause. Hundreds of pies were consumed Saturday afternoon in downtown Phoenix, as some of the best chefs in town squared off in an extraordinary display of pie love. Chocolate was big.
You joined in, too: Community bakers brought everything from caramel peanut and chocolate marshmallow pecan to cherry chocolate and sweet potato pies, as well as a lemon chess we're still trying to get the recipe for. (We'll pass it on to you later this week if we do.)

Thanks to our judges: Chow Bella's Carol Blonder; Matt Pool of Matt's Big Breakfast, Giant Coffee and The Roosevelt; Barbara Harris of Feeding Frenzy; Gwen Ashley Walters of Pen & Fork and Andrea White of the sadly-no-longer-local Saffron Kitchen.
And thanks to you, Chow Bella readers, for joining us. See you next year!
