Spend a summer morning in the Red Hen Artisanale studio, making a delicious, seasonal pie!

This Decorative Pie Workshop takes place in a private baking studio, Red Hen Artisanale. It is located across from the beautifully copper clad St. John's Catholic Church in Glenelg Centre along the Saugeen River. More details of locating the studio will be sent upon registration.

We will begin the workshop with discussing different types of pie dough, the importance each ingredient plays in the final product, and then get into physically working the butter into the flour to create a delicious, flaky, and very forgiving and versatile pie dough. 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. During the 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 a wonderful aroma of fresh baked goods!

To finish off, 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. Come socialize with like-minded bakers and get busy creating something new with your hands!
