Let's bake pastry pies for dinner! In this class, we'll delve into a few of the delicious savory pies found in just about every culture. We'll make Potato Knishes, a Jewish staple in Eastern Europe; Beef Pasties, served up by the thousands in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (but originating in England) and Spanish Pork Empanadas. We'll teach you how to make a flaky pasty dough, tender knish dough and traditional lard empanada dough. You'll learn to make the accompanying fillings and get practice hand-forming each of your little savory "pies."
You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and all the pasties and knishes you made in class.
In-Person: We'll end class with a tasting of what we made and you'll go home with some great coupons.

Cup or Bowl? Cookbooklet
Cup or Bowl?, the first in our series of cookbooklets, features a collection of favorite soups and bread pairings that have graced our Bakeshop lunch menu for nearly 20 years. The cookbooklet includes 15 soup recipes you can make at home, ranging from cold summer classics like heirloom gazpacho to American standards like creamy Tomato De-Vine. Shipping is included in the price of the cookbooklet.
Basic Pastry Baking Kit
Our Basic Pastry Kit is ideal for newer pastry bakers, and includes tools we typically use for baked goods like scones, cookies, and brownies. It comes packed with the following equipment: a bowl scraper, a bench knife, an oven thermometer, ten sheets of parchment paper, a small pastry brush, a small offset spatula, 1 oz portion scoop, and a french rolling pin. The price includes ground shipping. For more in-depth equipment descriptions please go to our FAQ page or send us an email at [email protected].
My Weigh Kitchen Scale
A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!
The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. The price includes ground shipping.
