Pastry with Perks: Hand Pies & Coffee
9 am - Southern Season Cooking School
Golden, flaky, portable and portion-controlled, hand pies allow for a lot of flexibility and creativity when it comes to choosing shapes, fillings and flavor profiles. Plus, serving them is a breeze – no utensils are required for cutting or eating.
But as with all types of pastry preparation, some faith and patience are required in hand-pie handiwork. Our experts will roll up their sleeves in this class and pass along the secrets to savory and sweet hand pie making, while teaching how to avoid the pitfalls of overfilling and overworking the dough. In the end, we’ll embrace a major hand pie upside: the finished product!
Because it’s always good to start the day with a cup of java, we’ll have Carrboro Coffee Roasters’ founder (and leading judge for the World Barista Championship) give us a few tips and skills to take home and “up your cup” – from grinding to brewing to equipment needs. No doubt this will be a great way to begin the day!
