World Pi Day is celebrated around the world on March 14th. Bord Bia and Con Traas of Irish Apple Growers Association have a delicious way to celebrate the day in Ireland this year and call for Irish consumers to take part in the Apple Pie Challenge.
Consumers are encouraged to bake an apple pie for a friend, and share their photo of the pie on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #IrishApplePieChallenge on or before World Pi Day. There are several locations around Ireland where consumers can collect Bramley apples for free. For said list, click here. Interestingly enough, Ireland grows 1/3 of the world’s supply of Bramley apples, and they are one of few types used in cooking nowadays.
The winning prize includes a two nights stay at Catherine Fulvio’s 4* Ballyknocken House, Farm and Cookery School. The two nights stay will include breakfast each morning, a set four course dinner served on both nights with pre-dinner sherry, and a half day cookery class at the famous school.
Here’s a recipe to get you started: Apple Pie Recipe by Neven Maguire.
