In which I tell you about the second half of the show, the ringer winner and my fail pie.
So where was I? I remember, pie talk. After Martha spoke to some audience members about their pies, chef Sandro Micheli (also one of the judges) made a beautiful chestnut pie with rum cream, that made the whole set smell great.
A week ago I was in the audience and took a (required) pie to the “First Annual Martha Stewart Pie Contest”. It was a very interesting experience, saw my first television “live” taping, Martha Stewart in the flesh, clapped and “hmmmmm-ed” on command, met and had a blast with the awesome Susan from DoughMesstic , her Sister and Gail (who owns One Tough Cookie) and did not win the contest (not that I really thought I had a shot…).
