What you'll do

Learn the art of great, down-home baking in this fun and informative hands-on experience. The winter months are a great time for cozy indoor activities, and nothing fits that bill more perfectly! So relax and prepare to enjoy the wonderful smells in this pressure free zone. We’ll have a clinic on pie pastry - from rolling to fluting, and make a pie from scratch for you to take along. We’ll also whip up a few other personal favorites for you to take and to brag about. You might not be a baking expert when you leave, but you will know enough to dazzle your friends and family. You’ll have the chance to ask any and all of your baking questions, and you’ll depart with a bunch of goodies, a head full of new baking knowledge, and most importantly, a newly created memory of a great experience.

Michael

I founded, owned, and operated a wholesale and retail scratch bakery in the heart of Lancaster County for 20 years. Over that time, I developed literally hundreds of signature recipes across all classes of baking - from pies to cakes to cookies to breads, tortes, cheesecakes and more. I have since moved on to other ventures, but I have never lost the passion for creating great desserts. And now I want to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with you in a hands-on exploration of the baking traditions of the area.

What's included

Drinks
I will provide coffee, tea, water, and snacks.
