The office is flooded with delicious sweetness this morning as competitors for the First Annual SolidLine Media Pie Bake-Off file into the office. That’s right, in honor of March Madness and Pi Day, SolidLine Media is bringing a little competition to the workweek. The Chili Cook-Off got pretty heated, and not just because Editor John Courchane’s recipe included Ghost Peppers, so we’re excited to see where this sweet battle takes us.

This week, SolidLine is hosting two SIUC “externs,” that is, student interns that complete a short one week internship over their spring break. The externs, Rachel Head and Joe Klotnz, will be filming the action and an honorable Mystery Judge will have the difficult task of judging the competition.

The Official SolidLine Pie Baking Rules

  • -No buying pre-made pies. You must construct the pie yourself. You are, however, permitted to buy a pre-made crust or filling.
  • -Your wives can help…your wives cannot do all the work.
  • -Provide a short list of main ingredients–we don’t want to spend the day epi-penning everyone
  • -Pies will be labeled anonymously.
  • -Pies will be judged as served–Don’t forget your toppings!

The Mystery Judge will determine the winner of BEST PIE and  the crew will be asked to vote for their favorite pie: PEOPLE’S CHOICE. Don’t worry, we’ve told them rather strictly that they are not permitted to vote for themselves.
The winners in each category will each receive $100, bragging rights and the joy of claiming a stunning Pie Champion Trophy.
In true SolidLine fashion, a trophy will also be awarded to the baker of the WORST PIE.
