Art of the Pie – Take Two
About a month ago I wrote about Art of the Pie, a wonderful, local pie class (with sessions scheduled in San Francisco, too). Ruth Reichl loved the class she took and Dorie Greenspan is a fan. The current schedule of classes are nearly full so if you are interested, now’s the time to sign-up. There are only a few openings remaining. And, I’ve heard from Kate, the instructor/owner, that the price will be increasing for the next set of classes. I’d particularly like to help her get the last spot on April 8 filled, since I’m kind of responsible that it’s still open. :-/
I’m really looking forward to taking this class. I’ve been making pies since my pre-teens and even was the pie-maker for a bakery and restaurant during my college years. But I’m mostly self-taught after learning the basics that my mom so proficiently passed on to me. I’m planning on adding what I learn to my set of tools, but I know this is a great class for a beginning baker, too.
So before the vegetable bounty of spring and the fruit bounty of summer is available at every farmers’ market and roadside stand, do yourself a favor and sign up for this class. You’ll soon be the pie baker that all your friends are talking about!
