Sweet & Savory Tarts Date Night

You know that nothing beats a light, flaky crust and this is what makes homemade pie so special. We will practice making crusts by hand and once they are baked in the home oven and have cooled down, we will fill the golden shells with seasonal fruits. 

Students will also have the opportunity to assemble a vibrant composed salad topped with the freshest Maine seafood.

Students are welcome to BYOB.

Meet Jillyanna

Classes take place inside the teaching kitchen and outside of the kitchen on a bluestone patio.
