A hands-on in-person cooking class. Alongside the baked goods, a hearty snack of cheeses, veggies and dips, and a seasonal salad will be served with wine and beer. This class is limited to 12 students. Review our registration and cancellation policies here. Masks are welcome.


Get ready for pie season! We tend to champion our favorite pie fillings - but it’s the quality of the crust that can make or break a good pie. If you’ve struggled in your own kitchen with soggy pie bottoms or dense, overworked crusts, then this class is for you.

Join Jennifer in our classroom to delve into the science and process of making tender, crisp and flaky pie dough. We’ll make three different types of pies, each filled with the flavors of Autumn and the holiday season, while also learning how to modify each one depending on the season and which produce is available.  While we may spend the class debating sweet potato versus pumpkin pie, at least we can all say no more to soggy bottoms! 

You'll sit down in triumph with your fellow classmates to taste the delicious fruits of your labor.



Flaky Pie Dough: You'll never be afraid of making pie dough again. This flaky, buttery dough will become your go-to crust.
