Join Brian Medford, owner and baker of Idlewild Biscuits and Bakes for a morning of pie making.  This comprehensive class explores the steps of creating pie with seasonal ingredients.  Brian provides one-on-one attention as you learn techniques for creating a flakey pastry, rolling and shaping crusts, baking pie, and troubleshooting common pie dilemmas.

The menu includes:

raspberry pie with oat crumble topping

lemon-buttermilk chess pie

mixed-berry pie with lattice crust.

This is a hand-on class, bring an apron and an appetite as we eat pie together at the end of class. Each student will leave class with two disks of flakey pastry dough they made themselves!
