To start things off, we’ll gather on Friday evening to meet other pie makers from across the country and enjoy a freshly baked pie made by Kate.
Meet Sweet Gretapie and Mr Fez, too!
On Saturday morning we will make dough and a savory chicken pot pie filling for our lunch. Your afternoon is free to see the sites and enjoy the events on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula, take a walk, or knit for a spell, or maybe even a nap, or have another baking session on whatever you would like to learn! Tarte Tatin, hand pies? The kitchen is open for creative endeavors! After supper on your own, you’ll return to Pie Cottage for pie stories, laughter and a “Saturday Night at the Movies” viewing of Waitress or A Few Good Pie Places with popcorn and cocoa.
Sunday morning we’ll make and bake fresh fruit pies to take home.
Also included is a signed copy of ART OF THE PIE: A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO HOMEMADE CRUSTS, FILLINGS, AND LIFE
