Virtual Savory Pies


Let's bake pastries for dinner! In this interactive, online, Zoom class, we'll delve into two of our favorite delicious savory pies: potato knish, a Jewish staple in Eastern Europe and beef pasties (we’ll give you the recipe for caramelized onion and cheese as well), served up by the thousands in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (but originating in England).

We'll teach you how to make a flaky pasty dough and tender knish dough.  You'll learn to make the accompanying fillings, gain some knife skills, and get practice hand-forming each of your little "pies." 

We can’t wait to (virtually!) bake with you! With your registration, you will receive the student guide, a grocery and equipment list, and any associated information for the class. You will also receive a link to the Zoom invite. This is your invitation into the class! Consider adding it to your Calendar.

We encourage you to look through the recipes at this time and the list of ingredients and equipment you will need to have handy in order to plan your trip to the store and have your class run smoothly. 

Day of Class

  • We ask that you have your ingredients out and ready to scale before class. We can all scale together, just make sure to have ingredients accessible. 

  • Please have a look at the equipment list to make sure you’ve got everything handy. 

  • While not required by BAKE! Law, we highly, highly, highly recommend that you use a scale to ensure the best results and accuracy when baking. 

  • On the day of your class, gather your ingredients, and make yourself comfortable. Expect to see your instructor ready to invite you in 5-10 minutes before class starts. We will do (with some tweaking!) carry on our class as we do our in-person public classes...but this time, you’ll bring your own apron! 

General Thoughts

We understand and expect that we will all work at different speeds, and ask that you be courteous of this in our classes. We have limited our class size to 12 (households, that is, we know there may be more than one of you participating in each home) to ensure that everyone gets the attention and help that they need. 

Since this is a new format for us, we’re learning as we go along! Any feedback or suggestions you have can be sent to [email protected]
