Here's more info:
On December 5 from 11am to 5pm, PS 29 in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, will host the second annual “Eat Pie and Shop” Holiday Gift Fair and Pie Social, to benefit the school. Proceeds from this family-friendly Holiday event will support the school’s PTA.
The Pie Social is sure to be a delicious and entertaining afternoon event with local bakers – both amateurs and professionals – supplying a wide array of pies. Be assured this event is not only for those with a sweet tooth, the pies will cover all categories including fruit, creamy, savory and nut, so shoppers can come to shop, eat lunch and get dessert!
One of the most exciting parts of the day is sure to be the pie competition. Bakers are invited to bring pies to be judged by parents and a panel of celebrity judges.
The panel will consist of Gail Simmons, Food & Wine and “Top Chef,” Dannielle Kyrillos, “Top Chef: Just Desserts,” Francois Payard, co-owner of Francois Payard Bakery, Francois Chocolate Bar, and Payard, Jeff Lederman, owner of Cobble Hill’s Strong Place, Boca Lupo and Nectar and Brooklyn’s own Borough President, Marty Markowitz. The winner will receive a gift package from Food & Wine, Payard, Fork & Pencil and bragging rights for the year! Judging will take place at 1pm.
The Gift Fair will highlight local artisans, craftspeople and merchants, and promises to provide a huge variety of handmade, local and sustainable gift-giving choices, from jewelry, to clothing from Half Pint Citizens to handmade toys from Fork & Pencil. More than twenty different vendors will be displaying and selling their wares.
Thank you to our event sponsors Fork + Pencil, Half Pint Citizens and Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain.
