About The Event

Join Chef Melissa Walnock, a classically trained pastry chef from the CIA Apple Pie Bakery Café, in the Watergrasshill kitchen studio to discover the art of pie and tart making. Learn how to make delicious crusts and fillings and decorate/assemble pies and tarts so that they have a personal touch and look like they were created by a professional pastry chef.

We will start the class learning how to make a classic fool-proof pie crust that is perfect for sweet or savory pies! Then we will begin mixing two different pie fillings and practice rolling out the dough. Chef Walnock will demonstrate how to make a toasted meringue top that will be sure to impress your dinner guests. While the pies bake in the oven we will move on to the salted caramel tart which everyone will make and bring home to enjoy immediately!

Each participant will go home with their packet of recipes, and 3 desserts! Both pies can be brought home and frozen to be used for Thanksgiving and the salted caramel chocolate tart can be shown off and enjoyed immediately by your friends/family.
