Virtual Mini Pie BAKE!-cation

This class is being offered virtually. 

Join us for this two-day, virtual pie BAKE!-cation (in mini form)! Over the course of the two days, we'll make four of our favorites: a Pancetta and Vegetable Bean Pie with a hot water crust and Patti Pockets (on day one), and Mississippi Mud Pie and our spinach and artichoke calzones (on day two).

We'll get our hands on a lot of different pie doughs, practice rolling and shaping, make an array of fillings, and even tackle some knife skills. It'll be a Festival of Pies! 

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and everything you made in class: a 9-inch Pancetta and Vegetable Bean Pie, eight Patti Pockets, a 9-inch Mississippi Mud Pie, and four spinach and artichoke calzones.

* Please note that this class takes place over two days. To make the meringue for the Mississippi Mud Pie, a stand mixer with whip attachment or hand held mixer will be helpful.
