A few weeks ago Susan Spungen and I gathered a small group of ladies from all over the country for our first Hamptons Workshop and Retreat. We picked apples in the rain, feasted on delicious seasonal meals including spritz hour and a delicious pizza dinner at Amber Waves Farm (run by a group of badass ladies), picked fresh veggies at Quail Hill Farm, watched Susan demo her famous Tarte Tatin, ate a Flemish Beauty pear galette with marzipan halva in a paella pan (so great for a group!), made pies to take home, and lots more.

A big thank you to our sponsors Vermont Creamery for providing all of the delicious butter and cheese that made our lunches and pies amazing, Williams Sonoma for the aprons and pie tools everyone used to make pies, Millie Lottie for gorgeous tote bags that everyone used to transport their pies home (so smart!), Woo Garden for delicious jams, and Rachel from Seed and Mill who attended the workshop and brought delicious tahini and halva to share with all of us!

It was such a great time and we can’t wait to do it all again in the Spring. Make sure to sign up for my newsletter over in the sidebar for early access to the next workshop!

I'm so excited to announce that this October 14-15, Susan Spungen and I are hosting a two-day Pie Baking Masterclass and Retreat in East Hampton!

We will gather at Susan’s light-filled home in Long Island during one of the most beautiful times of year to bake, harvest, share farm fresh meals, and most importantly demystify homemade pie crust so you can impress all of your friends and family this holiday season and hone those skills you’ve always longed to master.

All skill levels are welcome. This will be a perfect opportunity to enjoy fall on Eastern Long Island and polish your skills so you feel confident in your holiday pie baking and pie crust skills.


Overview

  • Baking Lessons - We will each demonstrate our favorite pie crust techniques both by hand and using a food processor, and show you how we use them in sweet and savory treats all season long. We’ll cover the basics, like proper rolling technique, how to use a French rolling pin, how to keep your dough at the right temperature, how to pick up dough to transfer it, and so much more! We’ll show you blind baking techniques, decorative pie crusts, and traditional lattice topped pies. Then we will let you loose in the kitchen to bake your own pie or galette to take home. You will receive one-on-one instruction from each of us.
  • Farm Visits - Fall in the Northeast is a beautiful and abundant time in the orchards and fields. We will visit a local pick-your-own apple orchard for perfect baking apples, have dinner at Amber Waves, and stop by Quail Hill Farm for greens and herbs to make into savory galettes.

  • Fresh Seasonal Meals - We will gather together around the table for one breakfast, two lunches, apertivo hour, one dinner, and snacks along the way all made from fresh local ingredients.

  • Photography and Styling - While this isn’t a photography workshop specifically, we will all want to share our creations so we’ll spend a bit of time photographing our beautiful work to share on social media and chatting with Julie Resnick of @thefeedfeed, who will join us for a meal.
