2018 marked our first year to sponsor the pie baking contest and the Larchmont Family Fair.
A special thank you to our judges: Daryl Twerdahl of St Vincent’s Meals on Wheels, Salvatory Pena of La Tropézienne Bakery on La Brea and downtown LA renaissance leader Hal Bastian!
Together they judged 8 delicious pies from local residents based on taste, texture and overall presentation.
The winner of the “Tiny” category was Willa Wiseman, 10 year old of Plymouth Blvd for her delicious cherry pie!
2nd place was tied among brothers August & Theo Mulkerin, 9 and 6.5, of Van Ness for their feijoa (fruit from their backyard) and apple pie AND Jack, 9, of Gower for his tasty lemon meringue.
The winner of the “Tasty” or adult category was Laurel Robinson White for her key lime chili cardamon crust pie! Yummy!! 2nd place went to her good friend Allison Ceppi for her cranapple pie.
After the announcements all pies were cut and shared with the community. What a treat!
Looking forward to next year….
