Pastry & Dough Fundamentals Baking Pie Workshop with The Pie Ladies $80

Come join The Pie Ladies on Tuesday, January 24th for an evening of dough and pastry making! Together you’ll chat flour and butter combinations, moulds and shells and fool proof recipes to adapt to all of your baking needs. Learn the fundamentals of making pastry with your hands vs. a mixer. Create a brilliant pastry for all of your savoury and sweet deserts. We’ll be working with local and organic ingredients sourced from around here. While the pies are baking, we will have some snacks and drinks. (Nibbles & drinks included!)

This workshop is perfect for understanding the foundation of pastry techniques. Everyone will walk away with a pie, a booklet of recipes and tips, and a few new friends.
