Darwin and I travelled to Ottawa that evening to enjoy a feast at The Table, vegetarian restaurant which sponsored the festival. It was really yummy food, with way too many options to try at one time (buffet style) - I'd definately go back again. We took a nice stroll around the area after dinner and then headed to his sisters place to crash for the nite.
So back to the pie contest. There were so many wondeful looking ones in display! After the judging, samples were available and I tried so many of them. Some were amazingly delicious, while others were just ok, and some were ..ummm...lets just say that looks can be deceiving.
Strawberry Mm-Rawgarita Pie!
Me and my pie!
In my personal opinion, a young woman named Caroline should have won (but still took third place) - she had the most outstanding pie! Layers of chocolate, caramel, and strawberry cream. Mmm!!!! This was by far my favourite pie!
All in all it was a fabulous experience and I look forward to the two day festival next year! I have all year to think about another pie ;)
