Creative Cookies: Dough Basics and Variations

Size: 4 to 10 people
Time: 2-1/2 hours

There’s no such thing as the holiday cookie, singular. There are cans, trays, and jars that must be filled with a variety of cookies every season. Some people simplify their holiday baking by holding a cookie exchange. This workshop takes that one step further: You’ll learn to find the basic ratios behind cookie recipes and how to swap up the ingredients to easily fill that cookie tray on your own. We’ll discover why cookies come in so many textures, shapes, and flavors and look at why some recipes work better than others. Whatever we don’t eat will end up on your tray to take home.

Perfecting Pies: Crusts and Fillings from Scratch

Learn how to make freshly baked pie in a flaky, buttery shell from scratch. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 4 to 8 people
Time: 3 hours

There’s nothing like a freshly baked pie in its flaky, buttery shell. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to make the final act of the night from scratch. I’ll share my tips and tricks to help you create a delicious crust and one of several fruit- or custard-based fillings. You’ll walk away with a crust and filling package ready to bake for your next gathering. We might just eat a little pie too.

Starting with Sourdough: Starter and Baking Basics

Size: 4 to 8 people
Time: 3 hours

Baking with sourdough can be easy, simple, and delicious, yet many people are hesitant to explore the world of wild yeast. This hands-on workshop focuses on how to care for and use sourdough starter in various recipes. In this small workshop, everyone gets involved in the process and learns by doing. I’ll be supplying active batches of my own sourdough starter and teach you how to “feed” it once you get it home. Together, we’ll make Sourdough Pita to enjoy during the workshop and share with your family or friends.

Grilled or Baked Sourdough Pizza

Combine sourdough pizza dough and seasonal produce to create gourmet pizza from scratch, baking it on a grill in summer and in your oven the rest of the year. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 4 to 8 people
Time: 3 hours

Gourmet pizza has become a restaurant staple. At home, you can combine sourdough pizza dough and seasonal produce to create gourmet pizza from scratch, baking it on a grill in summer and in your oven the rest of the year. This hands-on workshop is designed to get everyone involved in the process and learning by doing. With my guidance and homemade sourdough starter, you’ll make a batch of Sourdough Pizza Dough and learn to “feed” the starter so that you can take both starter and dough home. We’ll also turn a batch of dough into pizza to enjoy at the end of the workshop.
