Timmins to host a quest for the perfect pie

March 24, 2018 by  

An event that combines fighting hunger in the local community with learning how to make a pie from scratch is on the way for Timmins, and it is open to anyone who would like to add to their culinary skills.

Dr. Erin Thomson will be the featured chef for the occasion, and it will be a hands-on experience. Participants will learn how to make flaky crust that can be used for cooked pies, and Chef Thomson will also demonstrate how to make decorative shells for tarts and other pastries.

Each person who takes part will have a chance to try their hand at crafting a crust, and they will see a demonstration of custard making. At the end of the session, they will walk away with recipes they can try at home as well as a new skill they can use to bake for their friends and family.

The workshop is being offered to the community as a fundraiser for the Anti-Hunger Coalition of Timmins. The organizers noted that the event is suitable for those who are age 12 and up. A printer can use lamination to produce spill-proof recipe cards to give out to those who participate in this type of event.

This quest to craft the perfect pie has been planned for April 7, and it will start at noon. It will be held at 85 Spruce St. North, and more information can be found on the Timmins Chamber of Commerce website.
