Holiday Pie Making

Saturday November 19th, 6:30 to 10:00PM | Cost $85

Chef Jeannine Kelly

After the turkey, stuffing, gravy and mashed potatoes…. what is left?  Pie of course!  Pie is the traditional ending to the Thanksgiving feast- for good reason, it’s awesome!  I can pass by a row of cakes but a nice slice of pie beckons me.  The light flaky crust and oh so luscious filling.  Not too sweet mind you- maybe a little tartness of an apple or other fruit.  In this class Chef Jeannine Kelly will instruct us  how to make a perfect crust.  We will make a gorgeous chicken pot pie for dinner and a delicious salad along with our pies.


  • Yummy Chicken pot pie (make a turkey pot pie with your leftovers)
  • Apple streusel pie
  • Best ever pecan pie
  • Mixed berry with lattice crust
  • Seasonal salad
