Broadway GR Pie Contest


Today is Pi day, the symbol you probably remember from math class. But we are talking about a different kind of pie today that is much tastier. Broadway Grand Rapids is launching a pie recipe contest ahead of the arrival of the musical WAITRESS taking center stage next month. Here to tell us all about it is Meghan Distel.

As pie is a key ingredient to the storytelling of the show, Broadway Grand Rapids is seeking creative pie recipes that mimic Jenna’s whimsical recipes from the musical.  Bakers may submit their most creative, whimsical pie recipe, the kind of recipe that expresses your hopes, dreams, fears or frustrations, something baked right from the heart.

The top three finalist recipes will be chosen and notified on Friday, April 19.  Celebrity judges will choose the winning recipe during a taste-testing conducted on eightWest on WOOD TV, Thursday, April 25.   The Grand Prize winner’s recipe will be featured as an insert in the official WAITRESS cookbook.  Submissions for the WAITRESS Pie Contest will be accepted online from Thursday, March 14, 2019 through Monday, April 15, 2019, at 11:59 p.m.ET.  For more details about the Official Rules Baked from the Heart: WAITRESS Pie Contest, visit:
