The competition was tough. Each of the three finalists (Masstown Market Bakery from Masstown, N.S., Madeleine’s Cherry Pie and Ice Cream from Toronto, and Tartine Bread and Pies from Vancouver) delivered two pies to be baked at at Cinelli-Esperia Corp. in Woodbridge, Ont. The pies were scored independently based on criteria that applied to both sweet and savoury pies, including elements of the filling, ingredients, crust, and the pie’s viability in a commercial environment. Masstown Market Bakery’s Atlantic Seafood Pie was deemed the Ultimate Pie, winning a trip for two to Niagara Falls and a cover story in an upcoming issue of Bakers Journal.
Bakers Journal would like to thank BakeMark for sponsoring the pie contest and Cinelli-Esperia Corp. for hosting the judges. Congratulations to all three finalists on a job well done.
