The on-going Asheville foodie arguments are numerous and well-known: Organic vs. Local. Vegan vs. Vegetarian. Raw vs. Cooked. Fries vs. Tots. Eastern NC style BBQ vs. whatever-the-hell-they-dare-to-call-“Barbeque”-where-you-came-from.Yet, much like bringing up politics or religion at a family reunion, no one has seriously addressed the proverbial third rail of foodie arguments: Pie vs. Cake.
This March, however, the staff at the West End Bakery will muster the bravery and determination (which other might – fairly or not –characterize as stupidity) to provide a forum for the foodies of Asheville to decide this argument once and for all. Let the tournament begin!
After extensive internal debate, four cakes and four pies have been selected for participation, seeded and then slotted into a single-elimination bracket. Beginning March 5, customers at the West EndBakery will be able to try the cake and pie match-up and cast their vote. Each week we will see the winners progress until the ultimate champion is crowned on April 2,2012
