Pie Party Potluck LIVE!
Make. Bring. Eat. Pie.
Please come spend a fun evening enjoying the pies and company of food bloggers, food writers, food entrepreneurs, chefs, bakers, restauranteurs, other food biz peeps, pie enthusiasts and more. There were pies as far as our eyes could see at Pie Party Potluck LIVE! 2011 & 2012. It was epic!
- A savory or sweet pie, preferably home-made. Every attendee MUST bring a pie.
- A container to take pie home. Last year everyone was encouraged to take pie home and they did!
- Business cards - very helpful when you are trying to network with your mouth full of pie.
- Your appetite (stretchy pants might be a good idea...).
WHAT IS PIE?
noun /pī/pies, plural A baked dish of fruit, or meat and vegetables, typically with a top and base of pastry
Our definition of pie is a little looser. Pie: filling or topping and a crust. Suggestions: pie, tart, quiche, galette, pot pie, hand pie, empanadas, pasties, pizza, tartlets, strudel, pie in jars, pie-let, turnover or any other configuration or name for a concoction that includes a filling or topping and a crust.
PIE TIP: Bring a pie that is stable at room temperature. We had some melting pies last year, that were damned tasty, but became less pretty much to the chagrin of the peeps who brought them.
SHARE YOUR PIE!
Get our mouths watering. Let us know what pie you’re bringing in the comment on section of our Pie Party Potluck LIVE! Parade of Pies blog post. Be sure to include your twitter handle, the link to your blog or website or FB page, etc and I’ll list it on the blog post and tweet it.
Twitter Hash tag is #PiePartyGE
YOU NEED TO KNOW
EVERY attendee must bring a pie, preferably homemade. This is an invite only party for food bloggers and food industry professionals. If you want to bring your partner, your BFF, you dentist, etc., they must bring a pie.
You can't make a bad homemade pie -- anything that you labor to make from scratch will be completely appreciated. However, if you bring a pie that you didn’t make, make sure it’s a good one because the Pie Police will be in attendance.
Life is too short to eat bad pie. If you need suggestions of where to buy good pie in NYC email me Jackie at jackiegordon.com or reach out on Twitter.
First In, Most Pie: The pies will be served as they arrive so get to the event early to get the lion’s share of the pie.
Follow Ken (hungryrabbitnyc) and Jackie (divathatateny) on Twitter so you can see the Pie Party Potluck LIVE! tweets. Twitter Hash tag is #PiePartyLive. If you set up a #PiePartyLive column on whatever you use to view your Twitter feed you can chat with the other pie peeps.
We’ll provide signage and markers to write down the name of your pie.
