L'ESPRIT CREOLE - AUG. 5
Thanks to all the bakers who stepped up, swallowed hard and put their pies under scrutiny. It was an especially tough competition this year, with a tie among two apple pies for first place in the fruit/mixed fruit division. But after all was said - and tasted – rookie pie baker Victoria Hucek of Huntley emerged as the grand champion. She received a blue ribbon, commemorative rolling pin and her name added to the permanent Heritage Fair Pie Baking trophy.
Other winners by category were:
Fruit/Mixed Fruit: First - Audrey Davis, Harvard, and Victoria Hucek (tied, apple)
Berry: Jackie Wojt, Lake Geneva, Wis. (blueberry)
Other: Mary Thennes, Crystal Lake (Derby)
