Saint-lazare mom wins pie contest
Denise Stilmann’s raspberry sour cream pie has been named the best pie in Saint Lazare, following the Town’s second annual pie contest. Stilmann, who attended the Aug. 13 event with her family, was one of nine entrants to put their baking to the taste test. This year’s judges, town councillor Michel Lambert and Saint Lazare Farmers’ Market coordinator Thierry Juvien, who is also a pastry chef, said choosing the best pie “was not easy.”
They called Stilmann “a real cordonbleu” however for her creation that boasted fresh raspberries paired with sour cream. Stilmann won a gift basket filled with products from the Saint Lazare Farmers Market which was valued at $200. The weekly market, which runs each Tuesday afternoon, will continue until the beginning of October.
