In honor of the hit Broadway musical “Waitress” coming to Fayetteville, KNWA is teaming up with the Walton Arts Center to give local pie bakers a chance to shine with a “Baked from the Heart” pie contest.
Amateur or professional bakers can enter online here to compete in the ultimate bake-off.
You just need a creative pie name, a complete and typed recipe with clear directions and ingredients, a photo of your pie and your story about why this pie is your favorite.
Entries will be accepted through March 1st, then three finalists will be chosen to showcase their pies on Good Day NWA.
The winner gets four tickets to see “Waitress,” the chance to serve their pie at the media reception, a special feature on the March 14 episode of “Good Day NWA”, their winning recipe will be inserted into Sugar, Butter, Flour: The Waitress Pie Book sold at the merchandise kiosk during the run of Waitress at Walton Arts Center and the opportunity to serve their winning pie during our preshow media reception on Tuesday, April 9 at 6 p.m.
Finalists will be contacted on March 6, and they must be able to attend the March 8 filming of “Good Day NWA” from 10 a.m. until noon at Walton Arts Center. Finalists will need to bring their fresh-baked pie for our panel of judges.
Additional finalists will receive two tickets to “Waitress” and a special feature on the March 14 episode of “Good Day NWA.”
