Town sear­ching for best pie ma­kers

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Of­fi­cials in Saint-La­zare want to know who among the eques­trian mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ties’ near­ly 20,000 re­si­dents makes the best pie in town?

Those willing to put their pas­try to the test are en­cou­ra­ged to par­ti­ci­pate in an an­nual contest being held at 7 p.m. on Aug. 19 in the town hall par­king lot, during the week­ly Far­mer’s Mar­ket.

The contest will be jud­ged by a pa­nel of dis­cer­ning pie tas­ters com­pri­sed of mem­bers of the town coun­cil and ad­mi­nis­tra­tion, as well as “spe­cia­lists,” ac­cor­ding to an of­fi­cial in­vi­ta­tion. It is open to all re­si­dents 18-years and ol­der. Chil­dren can par­ti­ci­pate as long as an adult is willing to ac­com­pa­ny the child. Ba­kers must be willing to at­tend the event and be on hand during the jud­ging. All pies, which will be jud­ged ba­sed on taste, pre­sen­ta­tion and originality, will be tas­ted by the judges as well as by spec­ta­tors. Two win­ners will re­ceive gift bas­kets filled with goo­dies from the Saint-La­zare Far­mer’s Mar­ket va­lued at $100 each. They will al­so re­present SaintLa­zare in a re­gio­nal pie contest ta­king place on Aug. 21 in Les Cèdres.

Par­ti­ci­pants must com­plete an on­line re­gis­tra­tion form by Aug. 19 which is avai­lable on the town’s web­site at: www.ville.saint-la­zare.qc.ca/en/concours.
