Not so confident when it comes to making pie crust?
Looking to spice up your go-to pumpkin pie recipe for the family?
Just in time for Thanksgiving, Paula will share her tips on how to make a simple but delicious crust, variations on pie filling, and even some fun historical tidbits about our region's pie-making traditions.
Using locally-sourced pumpkins and squash, cream, and eggs, Paula will walk the class through the complete pie-mkaing experience, and each participant will get to take home a delicious pie!
Aluminum pie pans and all ingredients will be provided for all class participants. Please bring your own fork and kitchen towel.
$15 SEMAP Members | $20 non-members
Class capped at 15 participants.
This hands-on workshop will cover making and handling pastry and preparing pie fillings starting with locally grown pumpkins and squash. For those interested in branching out beyond usual holiday fare, we'll also play with a few surprise vegetables that were once popular pie options in southeastern Massachusetts. Each participant will select his or her ingredients and make and bake a pie to take home. You'll also take home enough dough for one future pie, and several recipes to keep you baking.
If you've never made a pie, pumpkin is a great place to start. Or maybe you just want to hone your pastry skills and gain confidence with a rolling pin. Either way, we'll have fun and bake a lot of great pies!
The instructor, Paula Marcoux, is the food editor of edible South Shore and South Coast, and is on the web at www.themagnificentleaven.com.
