Classes

"To provide value, to teach, to experience, to foster community".  

Who we are as teachers:

We are sisters raised in a small town with a large, tight-knit family that lived the meaning of "food is love";

We learned to roll pie dough and bake cakes when we were old enough to sit on our Grandma's counter;

Pie Mistress Nina rolled dough professionally for ten years before her talent created our trademark crust;

We have studied the science of pastry for years and have created all of our own recipes;

Our Rock Star Pastry Chefs have unbelievable skill and passion to decorate;

We are mothers, friends and co-workers;

We love to eat, laugh and teach others.
