Just in time for the holidays, local bakers compete and dish out their best pies.
For sure, this competition will have you howlin’ for another slice.
The Arizona Greyhound Rescue is teaming up with Trident Grill III and some of Tucson’s most talented bakers for the “Pie for Paws” baking contest from 1 – 5 p.m. on Sunday, November 18.
This is the first time the Arizona Greyhound Rescue has thrown a bake-off like this, and everyone that’s already involved is ready to take off with the grand prize.
The winning baker will win a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, a $100 cash prize, and a trophy (for bragging rights, of course). The runner-up won’t go home empty-handed either, earning a $50 Trident Grill gift card.
Some inspiration for our Pies for Paws Fundraiser!
If you’d like to compete with your best pie, make sure you get registered by calling (520) 647-4557. If you’d like to observe, taste, and cheer on your favorite baker instead, tickets are $20 per person at the door. Tasting begins at 1 p.m. and judging at 1:30 p.m.
The baked pies will be judged by:
- Kellen Berkenpas, co-owner of Nadine’s Bakery
- Erika Bostick, executive chef at Seis Kitchen
- Bobby Duffek, chef at Trident Grill.
The pooches from Arizona Greyhound Rescue will be at the event to cheer on the contestants, and live music will be provided by The Demons of South Tucson.
Trident Grill III is located at 250 S. Craycroft Rd. For more information on the contest, how to join, and more, call (520) 647-4557 or visit azgreyhoundrescue.org.
