I am teaching a workshop next month and would love for you to join me!
We will make pie together. We will eat pie together. In this six-hour workshop, I’ll share my non-fussy and big-hearted approach in the kitchen and the things I’ve learned over the last few decades of my floured devotion. Intention > perfection. It will be fun, informative, creative and delicious. We will be a small crew in a farmhouse kitchen, working our buttery dough into edible masterpieces.
The workshop will be held at Middle Bear Farm in the heart of the Bitterroot Valley in western Montana. A working farm owned and operated by the fabulous Cindy Jimmerson, Middle Bear Farm is cozy and gorgeous with sweeping views of the Rocky Mountains. Located in Victor, Montana, which is about 45 minutes south of Missoula, MT.
Saturday, April 8, 2017 / 11am-5pm
11-12: arrive, chat and eat pie
12-1:30: make apple pie
1:30: lunch, made by me. Probably some sort of wholesome soup.
After lunch: While the pies cook, participants will have a few hours to choose their own adventure: hike up Bear Creek, journal by the pond, read by the fire, hang with the sheep, sip wine and chat, wander and photograph, help farmer Cindy make her famous honey ice cream…
4-5: Gather together and marvel at our pies while we say our goodbyes
Stay the night! For an additional $60, you can sleep in the farmhouse. Cindy’s home sleeps 12 comfortably (first come, first served regarding bed choice; click here to see options.) And Cindy will make you a delicious breakfast in the morning too! The weather can be iffy in April, but if you’d rather pitch a tent on the farm you sure can for $20. Breakfast also included for campers. And trust me; Cindy’s breakfast will knock your socks off!
Cost for the day is $160/$220 if you want to stay the night. You get instruction, snacks, lunch and beautiful recipe cards. You take home a finished pie. Bring your own pie plate. Other than that, all ingredients (local!) and supplies are included.
We will also set up a little DIG + CO. shop (with some new pie-related goods) at the farm. Participants get 20% off all purchases.
