What's so great about tomato pie?
Ahh it's that time of year where the farmer's market weather is warm and those ripe tomatoes bring back memories of southern summer tomato pies. For those that don't understand that it's not a pizza well...you'll have to just come and taste why. That's right! Once the judging takes place the pies are available for tasting. Or better yet why don't you just make one! Tomato Pie Contest Form.
Judges this year are Drew Archer, a Chef & Culinary Instructor, Wil Brasington with Greenville City Council, Grace Hartley of GVL Today, Brooke Williams and Ashley Ekwere the 2018 Tomato Pie Winners.
When and where does the Tomato Pie Contest happen? At The Pickwick of course, 3219 Augusta Street. Contest is on Saturday, June 22 and will begin at 2:00 pm and winner announced around 4:00 pm. Good luck!
