Pie Safe for Safe Place

I have been working very hard with some lovely ladies (and Tequila Bob!) in the Austin Food Bloggers Alliance to help organize a fundraiser this Sunday benefitting SafePlace Austin.  We are selling tickets at $10 each for a screening of the movie Waitress at the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar at 1:00 PM on Sunday August 21.  You can also buy a slice for $10 of the award winning pecan pie from Michael Chu of Cooking for Engineers during the movie or a whole pie donated from over a dozen local businesses, which will be sold outside the theater.  So click on the flyer and buy your tickets now.  I’d love to see you there!

*****Update*****  Thanks to a lot of hard work from a lot of people, we raised over $2000 to benefit SafePlace.  Thank you for all of your support!

My name is Christy and I was born, raised, and still live in Austin, TX. I love to travel. I have been all over the US, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, etc. My second favorite place in the world is Negril, Jamaica where I have been 10 times and counting. I am a trained pastry chef but I am not currently working in "the industry" right now. I became a pastry chef in part to complement the fabulous dinners conjured up by my best friends Ethan and Michelle, who hopefully will be contributing to this blog as well. We went through a 2 year period of "Tuesday Night" dinner parties which were a smorgasbord of bloody meat and red, red wine. Friendships and laughter. The men did all the cooking while the women got tipsy, as all dinner parties should be. If I wanted to participate with food, I had to bring something and I became Dessert Girl. Eventually I attended the Le Cordon Bleu program at the Texas Culinary Academy and received a certificate in Pastry and Baking. I have had several baking jobs but found it hard to make ends meet, so I earn my living elsewhere for now. I have had the pleasure of working with several celebrity chefs including Rebecca Rather, Bronwen Weber, and David Lebovitz. I have also cultivated some amazing friends and resources in the Central Texas area and would like to share my knowledge with all who care to join me. My most recent honor was winning Best Sweet at the Bacon Takedown during SXSW 2011. As the culinary icon Ms. Childs' says, "Bon Appetit!" ***CONTACT ME at christy111luv@yahoo.com or twitter @christy111luv***
