It's what all the cool kids are doing, folks. Baking Pies a Plenty, actually - it's the name of the pie baking workshop the Ma and I went to this evening at Zingerman's Bakeshop. Basically, Zingerman's is the coolest company in the whole wide world, and anything they do is the coolest. If you don't know them, go here and explore all they do - they're fantastical, seriously - will knock your socks off.
It was four hours of awesome. We each took two pies home, apple and pumpkin - and we made everything, crust, fillings, all that good stuff. Not to mention, we got to learn all about ingredients and the science behind them. We're pros now. Take that, Betty Crocker.
