Seasonal baking? Piece of pie. Pastry chef Laurie will share her baking secrets — from handling dough to selecting quality ingredients — and empower you to make a tender, flaky, all-butter pie crust. Laurie will discuss types of flours as well as fruit varieties and troubleshoot common pie problems while she bakes Blueberry Pie with a lovely lattice crust. As a bonus, she’ll also demonstrate how to make simple hand pies!
About the instructor: Laurie encourages lively discussions with students about baking and pastry techniques, seasonal produce and specialty products, and is passionate about teaching not only the “how,” but the “why” of baking and pastry. Laurie was the pastry chef at Salish Lodge and Spa for three years, worked at King Arthur Flour, where she learned artisan bread making and classic pastry techniques, and worked in various East Coast pastry kitchens. She is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and is the chef and owner of Pastry Craft, a pastry instruction company.
