I had never seen Enid's so packed, but I guess when pie comes a callin', you got to accept the charges. There were 40-plus pies entered in the apple pie contest and I didn't taste any of them because I'm not really a dessert guy and I had just eaten a huge plate of chicken mole. But I digress. Jonathan Toubin whipped up the crowd with his old-school beats while food got served in stick form. Food on sticks and apple pies? Yup, it was like a county fair except with hipsters instead of fat people. And the winners are ...
Not Eating Out in New York blogging superstar Cathy Erway (right) with Chrysanthe, aka the most popular girl in Williamsburg.
3rd Place: Cathy Erway. Cathy's brown butter sage pie was half-eaten by the judges at the very beginning, so it was pretty clear they loved it. She has the skills, I've been told, to pay the bills.
2nd Place: Karol Lu. Karol of Billiardsburg cooks pies almost as well as she plays pool. Seriously, do not challenge her at either of those things because she will defeat you.
1st Place. Some guy. This guy won the whole thing, but I didn't catch his name. He apparently is an experienced apple pie contest veteran who used some kind of truffle salt in his pie. Kudos, dude who won the contest!
