In this hands-on class, we'll bake a pie from start to finish! All your pie questions will be answered: What is the best fat to use for a crust? How do I stop my filling from being oozey? And so much more as we talk technique!
And while our pie is baking, you'll learn about the history of pie--and crazy flavors from the past to inspire your contemporary baking!
Each participant will make their own mini pie to take home and bake, as well as get to enjoy a slice of pie in class.
