Savory Pies

2 pasties sit above 2 knish on a baking sheet atop a marble counter.

this class is being offered virtually.

Let's bake pastries for dinner! In this class, we'll delve into a few of the delicious savory pies found in just about every culture. We'll make potato knish, a Jewish staple in Eastern Europe; and beef pasties, served up by the thousands in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (but originating in England). We'll teach you how to make a flaky pasty dough and tender knish dough.  You'll learn to make the accompanying fillings and get practice hand-forming each of your little "pies."

My Weigh Kitchen Scale

$60.00

A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. Shipping is included in the price.
