The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic presents the roving red tomato carpet at the 3rd Annual ‘Bake Bethesda a Pie’ Contest at Central Farm Market in Bethesda, MD. His goal is to show people living with, at risk and affected by diabetes that having diabetes doesn’t prevent you from enjoying a wide variety of foods. Learn to eat well-balanced meals in the correct amounts, stay fit, and take your prescribed medications, and you can thrive with diabetes.
Special guest, Kathy Gold RN, MSN, CDE, Director of Outreach and Education at the Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation in Washington, DC helps to raise awareness for diabetes in a fun and glamorous new way.
Over the Labor Day weekend, thirty-three fruit and veggie loving amateur bakers brought their best efforts —ranging from butterscotch and fig to peach and prosciutto, with lots of berry pies in between.
In the blind tasting, judges Joseph Poupon of Patisserie Poupon, Catherine Gewertz of CurvyMama Pies and Carole Sugarman from Bethesda Magazine rated each pie numerically on appearance, taste and overall impression. Prizes were awarded to all the winners but the event is also a fundraiser for the Manna Food Center, Montgomery County’s food bank. #centralfarmmarkets
