The theme for Cook with Us #22:

Pies and Tarts

This week at Cook with Us we are exploring all the wonderful and tasty ways to make pies and tarts. Whether sweet or savory, pies and tarts are always a real treat. This week we would like for you to share with us your favorite tart or pie. Since there are so many variations of pies and tarts we will not be having a mystery theme this week.
Also, If you do not have a pie plate or tart pan you can still participate. There are countless pies and tarts that are made “free-form”. Here are a few examples for you: Cherry Hand Pie, Peach Crostata and Pissaladière. Good luck everyone! We are excited to see what you will make in this final week before the @docsmith handcrafted knife contest.

The Cook with Us Contest

The Cook with Us team - @chefsteve , @pandamama and @offoodandart - is very excited to welcome you and look forward to getting to know you as we cook or create dishes together. It is our intention to build a community of people that enjoy cooking and sharing with each other.
The contest is divided into two groups. The first group is the General Pool and the second is the Winners' Circle. Each group will have three winners ranking from 1st place to 3rd place. Every contestant starts in the General Pool. The 1st place winner in the General Pool advances to the Winners' Circle in the next round.
We are pleased to announce the following prizes for each group:
  • First place - 5 SBD
  • Second place - 3 SBD
  • Third place - 1 SBD

Winners' Circle

The following, if participating in Cook with Us #22, will be competing in the Winners' Circle.
