Pie School: The Best Kind of School

I used to think that my dream school would be to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. Ok let’s be real. It still is. But while that can only happen when I read J. K. Rowling’s magical series, I can actually physically be attending pie school. As soon as this Saturday. And that is a fantasy I never thought could become a reality! This is reason 502301 why I love my birthday month. And, of course, Louisville.

Pie School, that is!

What better place for pie reverie to flourish than at a location named Stellar Sweets Bakery? As an English major and a self-proclaimed dessertaholic, this sugar-devouring wordsmith adores both the word “stellar” and pie. One more than the other. I’ll let you guess which one.

For $30, on February 8th, you can be relishing pre-Valentine’s Day excitement with your (insert adorable pet name here) while learning how to make the pastry that I am convinced could bring about world peace. Not only will you leave with some serious baking skills to satisfy many dessert fixes to come, but you’ll be able to take pie-master Kate Lebo’s book, A Commonplace Book of Pie, as a memento/baking salvation. Fun fact: our own local publishing company Sarabande Books is sponsoring the event for this appetizing book.

Oh, and have I mentioned one of the most enticing parts? After an afternoon of demonstration and culinary interaction, you get to end school the coolest way possible: with a non-humble wedge of gooey, magnificent pie.

I will be putting on my Hermione hat and being the most studious of pie apprentices between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m.

Just make sure to RSVP via email to kmiller@sarabandebooks.org. As would be expected, the space for a pie-centric academy will be filling up faster than cinnamon apples having a jamboree inside a golden crust.

For those who shall be celebrating Singles Awareness Day this 2014, a ridiculously awesome aspect of Pie School is that you can go with a family member or a friend and still have the greatest Saturday afternoon. Make your mom happy. Go rejoice with flour-tinged noses with your best friend. You’ll genuinely be having so much fun in school; you won’t even want to pass secret notes.
