Event description

Description

A great opportunity to get some of your Christmas Baking out of the way at This Decorative Pie Workshop! We'll get creative with our pies, and stay cozy from the weather outside in a beautiful and bright private space at Bolete -- one of Niagara's top restaurants.

During our Decorative Pie Workshop, each guest will create a masterpiece of a seasonal pie to go home with and bake in your oven -- filling your home with wonderful warm aromas. (Or it can be thrown in the freezer, and brought out for all those Holiday gatherings you have coming up!) Our pie dough contains a secret ingredient -- sourdough starter. We will touch on the basics of keeping your starter alive for future baking, and you will go home with a small jar to maintain and care for. Bakers will be guided through demonstrations and instructions on how to creatively and individually decorate your pie -- whether it be with intricate lattice work or different cuts outs and textures.

We will work our way through a guided pie dough tasting session -- tasting and discussing the different types and varieties of fats commonly used in pie doughs...lard..generic butter..high fat butter..grass fed butter. We will be using nothing but high-quality, local ingredients whenever possible. Light snacks, tea, and coffee will be provided. Come socialize with like-minded bakers and get busy creating something new with your hands.

At the end of the workshop, each Baker will go home with:
:: A detailed booklet containing all of the information we covered in our workshop
:: A seasonal pie ready to bake when you get home, or freeze for a later occassion
:: A jar of sourdough starter for you to continue on your baking journey with
:: A new network of baking acquantances

Extra Info:
We will be on our feet for the workshop -- please wear comfortable footwear.

Feel free to bring a water bottle with you.

How long is the workshop?
The workshop will run from 2pm until approximately 5pm. The time is dependent on how much curiosity and conversation is created throughout the day.
