Hey, NY! Do You Like Pie?

Pie in the Park Picnic at Smorgasburg — by Lauren Cucinotta

Kickstarter is joining forces with Lauren Cucinotta, founder of Brooklyn-based pie-baking event Pie in the Park (she also self-published the event’s cookbook right here on Kickstarter), to host a pie picnic at Smorgasburg, the Brooklyn Flea’s brand new, wickedly delicious food market. There will be recipes, there will be people, there will be picnic blankets, and, most importantly, there will be lots and lots of pie from a mix of amateur and professional bakers. You even have the chance to bring your OWN pie!

Want to join in on the fun? Then just make a pledge! There is something for everyone. Here’s the deal:

Pledge $1, and you can be one of 15 bakers that commit to bake and bring a pie. You’ll get a run of custom-illustrated recipe cards of your pie recipe, and the chance to enjoy three slices of pie from other bakers.

Pledge $10, and you’ll get three slices of pie, plus custom-illustrated recipe cards of the pies that you eat. Take ‘em home and make your own Pie in the Park picnic (trust us, your friends will thank you).

Pledge $60, and you’ll snag a “Family Picnic Pack”, which includes a picnic basket, gingham blanket, the Pie in the Park cookbook, tea towels from Live from Bklyn and an entire pie from legendary Gowanus pie shop Four & Twenty Blackbirds. Yum.

We will also be filming and taking lots of pictures, so even if you can’t attend, you can still be part of the fun. Get involved! Come hang out with us!

Kickstarter + Pie in the Park at the Williamsburg Smorgasburg, June 18th. At the Williamsburg waterfront between North 6th and North 7th St., at the East River.
