Learn to make pies

Learn to make pies in the cooking class the FT called the ‘perfect pastry lesson.’ Pies are a great make-in-advance cuisine and always a crowd-pleaser!

In this class you will not only learn how to make the pie fillings and form the pies but also pick up tips on how to make and use beautiful buttery shortcrust, sweet shortcrust and puff pastry.

In a three hour class we don’t have time to make all the pie fillings from scratch and then cool them before topping with pastry so we prepare some of the ingredients in advance to be put together in the class and some elements are demonstrated.

You will sit down at the end of the session to eat your piping hot pies and enjoy a pint! Leave with new recipes and a boost of confidence thanks to our fantastic pastry chefs.

You Will Learn To Make:

  • apple pie
  • chicken & mushroom pies
  • beef & ale pies
  • Cornish pasties
  • shortcrust pastry
  • rich sweet shortcrust pastry (pate sucree) – demonstration
  • puff pastry – demonstration
