About this event

This Decorative Pie Workshop is held in a quaint, one room school house nestled amongst the cornfields between Ancaster and Paris. The Langford Schoolhouse was built in 1896, and was fully operational until 1964. It possesses all the original charm of hard wood floors, tin tile walls, and even the old chalkboards used to teach lessons. The schoolhouse is currently being used for community events that focus on bringing farmers, newcomers, and like-minded people together. All Bake Lab workshop sizes are kept small -- a maximum of 10 Bakers which allows for plenty of one-on-one assistance, personal space, and the chance to get all your questions answered. 

We will begin the workshop with discussing different types of pie dough, the importance each ingredient plays in the final product, and then physically working the butter into the flour to create a delicious, flaky, and very forgiving and versatile pie dough. 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! You also have the option to keep it in your freezer for a special future date. 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. 

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. 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.
