I was a judge, one of 16, at the Claremont Pie Festival on Saturday. I describe the experience in my Wednesday column.
Above, I’m hard at work, a moment captured by impish Claremont Councilman Sam Pedroza, who wasn’t a judge (Corey Calaycay was) but kibitzed with us. Below, a typical serving, of which we generally ate half, and below that, the scene afterward in which bakers served free tastes of their entries.
And you can watch a 45-second video — my first, and it shows — of a portion of the pie-eating contest here.
