Some people think baking is alchemy, and bakers are magicians. Others know that pie and pastry both have to do with the hands. From a baker’s hands emerge the telltale hearts of pastry, crumbling strata that melt or hang on lips and invite a darling’s dusting. In the hands of a baker, flour and butter are transformed from the mundane into the magical, 99 percent inspiration and one percent angels’ breath in the heat of the oven. Pie is not hard. Sift your flour and see how simple it is.
Registrants in this class will take home an Emile Henry pie dish ($40 value).
