Are You Ready to Crumble? KCRW Pie Contest Today!
What's more American than apple pie? Or pumpkin, pecan, chocolate-peanut butter truffle, key lime, lemon meringue, and razzleberry? Hundreds of Los Angeles-area pie bakers and lovers are due to convene today from 2-4 p.m. at the Westfield Topanga Shopping Center for the first ever KCRW Pie Contest, hosted by the station's "Good Food" guru and life-long pie enthusiast Evan Kleiman. Over 140 participants with pies in four different categories are vying for top tasting honors, and the public is invited to head over to Canoga Park to witness the pie-mania (and even nab some bites). So as DeepEndDining's Eddie Lin, one of the many celebrated judges who'll be partaking in the slices, says: "Let's get ready to crumble!"
