Hey what’s better than eating pie? Two answers: 1. eating lots of pie and 2. eating pie to raise money for a good cause. BK Farmyards is a group that turns abandoned areas in NYC into usable farmland. Saturday, they’re the charity benefiting from Megan Paska’s annual Brooklyn Pie Contest. Yes, Saturday is a few days away, but I wanted to give y’all time to scower your brains, dig through cookbooks, or call your mom to find a pie recipe so delicious Strawberry Shortcake would stab people with a fork for seconds. To enter, make a pie that has homemade crust and is not pizza, and bring a modestly sized place card with a description of the pie ONLY written on it. If you just want to eat pie, start conditioning your stomach now and scrape up the entry fee. For $5, you can sample all the pies, and you get a score card to vote for your favorite pie.
