This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

What’s better, or more beautiful, than a pie? Make a simple crust, add either eggs and cheese or fruit, and you’ve got a stunning meal or a celebratory dessert. The beauty of the pie lies in its simplicity: Master the basic form, and it becomes a canvas for endless experimentation.

This spring, we’ll be playing with two forms of pie: a classic quiche and a simple (but stunning) strawberry rhubarb pie, both using the same dough for their crusts. The result is full meal fit for an intimate Easter brunch or an afternoon tea with friends (outdoors, of course).
