Bakers from Watertown fired up their ovens to create their entries for the Faire on the Square baking contest, and the judges have spoken.
The competition was fierce, nine bakers entered and competed for the title of top “apple pie baker 2015.” Each pie was individually scored by points of one through ten for their appearance and their taste. Three prizes were awarded to the bakers/pies with the most points.
The top three bakers in the 2015 version of the contest were: First Prize – Chris Shepard, Second Prize – Jamie Mobed and Third Prize – Peggy Hayes.
The event was graciously hosted by volunteers – Tammy McKenna and Charlene McGann, and the esteemed four volunteer judges were Marilynne Roach, Jean Agrillo, Shane McKenna and Joyce Kelly.
All the pies were then cut up and served to those attending the event. Thank you Marilyn Devaney and Jesse James for your assistance with serving and sampling.
Assisting behind the scenes with setup (tables, table clothes, benches, moving the furniture to the foyer, supplies, flowers, and more) on the Friday before the Faire were Louise Civetti and Debbie Helie.
The organizers thank everyone who participated and helped with the event.
