 Harvest Fest  Harvest Fest

It's fun to write a recipe for food52, but have you ever wanted A & M to eat something you make at home?

For those of you in the New York area, this could be your chance! Amanda and Merrill will be at the local food and farming mecca Stone Barns Center this weekend to judge the annual Pie Bake-Off on October 2nd! The event is part of Stone Barns' popular Harvest Fest, a celebration of all-things-autumnal, where you can enjoy live music, a local farmer's market, hayrides and more. Get more details and download the submission form PDF here

And speaking of pies, this week's contest winner will receive more than just bragging rights, they'll also get two tickets to Harvest Fest and a membership to the Stone Barns Center. There's still time to cast your vote: Will you choose lapadia's honey-sweetened Himalayan Blackberry Pie? Or will Midge take the prize with her Brown Butter and Cheddar Apple Pie? You've got until tomorrow at midnight EST to decide who takes the cake (er, pie?).

Excellent images from last year's Harvest Fest can be seen below.

I am also wondering what the rules for a "proper double-crust" include. Hopefully a lattice crust is ok? What about crumb toppings though?

Lattice is okay -- crumb is not!

This is GREAT. I was just at Stone Barns not long ago with my son. He gathered eggs and went potato digging. We loved it there. Have never gone for the Harvest Fest, but I bet that's fabulous. It's such a fabulous location. And now that I know you'll be judging a pie bake-off... all the more reason I want to go. I may not be able to, as that's my mom's birthday, but will try to figure out how to squeeze it in--that is, if there are still tickets to be had. Guess I need to start baking some pies! Wish I had a bit more time this week, but will see if I can come up with something.

Hi -- I followed the link to the contest for more info on a "proper" double-crust pie, but it doesn't say anything about what that means. Does it have to have a fully-enclosed pastry top crust?

Lattice is okay -- but it does need to involve dough.

I am wondering what counts as a double-crusted pie? Does it have to be a pastry crust on top?

Yes, it does have to involve dough of some kind.

Totally not a pie maker but cannot wait to see what comes up!

And now that we're moving on to autumn recipes, is there any chance we could have a competition about your best chicken wings? Now that it's officially football season my boyfriend won't leave the topic alone...

A & M and fellow food52ers, help me out please - I'm only just getting used to 'seasonal' Western world cooking so what are my options of produce to use? Would the last of summer berries be accepted?

Netherlands green markets should be about the same. Really, a smoked eel pie would be great and they are just about in the same growing zone so the veggies and such would be about the same. Don't know if that helps, but I will say the Dutch make some great, great, sweet and savory pies.

oh and lest I forget, Dutch Apple Pies are in a world of their own.

Thanks thirschfeld, I had to smile at your 'trumping'of allt hings Dutch. I must confess the smoked eel pie sounds delish....you have me thinking. On the other hand, I must admit that the Oma's apple pies (grandma's pies) are amongst my least liked gebak (Dutch bakes)! Thanks again

Must a proper crust be involved or are cobblers, slumps, buckles, etc. eligible as well?

This is from your friendly editors at Food52.

For this contest, we're looking for proper double-crust pies (for more info, follow the link above to the contest page).
