The 2nd Annual KCRW "Good Food" Pie Contest was held Sunday in Beverly Hills, and the fun was as plentiful as the pie itself.

About 400 guests turned out to taste and celebrate the bakers of 122 pies vying for 17 ribbons during the free event held on the grounds of the Taste of Beverly Hills food festival. The Pie Contest was hosted by KCRW's "Good Food" host Evan Kleiman.

Up in the Stardust Room of the adjacent Beverly Hilton Hotel, the panel of judges--Jonathan Gold (LA Weekly); Roxanna Jullapat (Pastry Chef, Ammo Cafe); Zoe Nathan (Chef/Owner of Huckleberry Cafe); Akasha Richmond (Chef/Owner Akasha); Karen Hatfield (Pastry Chef, Hatfield's); Eric Greenspan (Chef/Owner The Foundry on Melrose); Christine Moore (Little Flower Candy Company); and Sang Yoon (Father's Office)--diligently tasted each pie, then debated their merits and determined the finalists.
