|Apple of Your Pie founder and author Eileen Kronauer offers pie making classes and demonstrations through schools, community education organizations, and in-home visits. Generally the pie-making classes are geared towards adults, but children are welcome. For the time being, the location of classes and demonstrations are limited to Massachusetts, southern New Hampshire and northern Connecticut, and Rhode Island (a reasonable driving distance).Program descriptionsDemonstrations
Eileen will demonstrate how to make a single pie from start to finish for any size audience. (Typically 25 persons or fewer works best, depending on the demonstration facility.) How to make a perfect crust, how to peel and slice apples, and assembling the final pie before it goes into the oven. Students (attendees) are encouraged to ask questions throughout the demonstration. All the tips and secrets are revealed!
Facilities required: Demonstrations can be held wherever there is a kitchen, which can include your home. Usually, the larger the audience, the more space you will need. School’s home-EC or community education facilities are good examples.Pie Classes
If it is individual hands-on pie making instruction that you want, there is no better way to learn than to take Eileen’s popular pie making class. Each student will go home with a pie that is ready to bake. Materials are provided and include all ingredients to make a basic flaky crust, apple cinnamon pie (flour, sugar, butter, shortening, apples, etc.) Students must provide their own pie plate (or we can provide an aluminum foil disposable pie pan. OK but not recommended.)
Facilities required: Pie classes require a large kitchen with suitable table or counter space where students can work with their materials. This can be a community or school venue, or a large in-home kitchen. To schedule a pie class Eileen requires a minimum of five participants, and a maximum of twelve. Education Programs
Eileen (the apple lady) also does school programs for first through eighth grades on the topics of apple history, how apples grow, what they are used for, how to distinguish varieties etc. Programs can be tailored for your students and normally run for about one hour. They include a slide presentation plus other visual tools and materials. Several presentations can be scheduled for a half day or full day. For an agenda or to find out how your school can benefit, contact Eileen at 978-456-6965, or send us an e-mail.
