Adult Education Program: Pies & Pastries



Tuesday, September 26, 2017
5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Advanced registrations required.

Nothing smells better than fresh baked pies and pastries coming from the oven! Using recipes from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, make pies and pastries by hand, and bake them in the wood-fired oven at the 1875-era farmhouse at Living History Farms. As you work, learn how to adapt a historic recipe for use in today’s kitchens. At the end of class, sit down to enjoy the creations you made. Bring an apron and an appetite! And don’t forget to bring containers to take home your creation. All costs of materials are included in the cost of the class.

  • Tangen Home (Check in at Visitor Center)
  • Number of Participants: Minimum 3, Maximum 5; Ages 18 and up
