On Saturday, Sue Chidester, entrepreneur and pie-baker extraordinaire, will take the mystery out of pastry-making and demonstrate how easy and satisfying pie-baking can be!  Sue will teach a second workshop on Sunday specializing in gluten-free baking. How does one thicken pie filling without using the traditional method of adding flour? What are the best gluten-free pie crust recipes? What baking modifications are necessary when baking gluten-free crusts? Come find the answers to these questions and more! Leave the workshop with several tested-and-true gluten-free pie recipes as well as brand suggestions and helpful dos and don'ts.

At the end of this workshop, you will go home with two vacuum-sealed GF pie crusts and GF filling for one fruit pie to save in the freezer:  Save these pie "parts" in the freezer for a special night, or show off your skills at the next holiday meal. 

Class fee includes a delicious lunch of savory gluten-free hand-pies (that you will make yourself), and a personal-size, GF sweet rustic torte. Because we want you to continue your successful pie-baking enterprise, a start-up pie baking kit is included in your fee (rolling pin, pie pan and pastry blender). All ingredients are included and you will receive a glass of Washington wine to enjoy by the fire at the end of the day. Classes are expected to fill very quickly. Don't delay your registration for this unique event!

Here's a special idea: bring your bridal shower, birthday party, or corporate team building to REC Retreats for a custom pie-baking workshop! Contact kjerstin@RECretreats.com to schedule.
