Heritage Foundation seeks peach pie bakers for contest

(July 23, 2015) The Berlin Heritage Foundation is looking for bakers to enter the peach pie-baking contest during its seventh annual Berlin Peach Festival on Saturday, Aug. 1, on the grounds of the Calvin B. Taylor House Museum, 208 North Main Street.  
Prizes will be awarded by a panel of three judges, including Shawnee Berzonski (Cupcakes in Bloom), Tracy King (Atlantic Hotel) and Robin Tomaselli (Baked Dessert Café).
The first-prize winner will receive a gift certificate for a one-night stay at The Atlantic Hotel. The second-place prize is a gift basket courtesy of First Shore Federal Savings & Loan, and third-place prize is a peach-themed cookbook and specially embroidered apron donated by OC Monogram Co.
A maximum of 12 entries will be accepted and entrants must sign up in advance. The registration deadline is Monday, July 27. Pies must be delivered on the day of the festival by 11:30 a.m.
Contestants must bring a recipe card that includes a list of ingredients, and they should be willing to allow the Berlin Heritage Foundation to share the winning recipe at next year’s festival.  
Worcester County Health Department rules stipulate that pies with perishable ingredients such as custard, ice cream or whipped cream pies may not be entered.
