Each student will make their own pie crust with the European-style butter from Straus Family Creamery, organic flour and their choice of freshly milled whole wheat flours from Pasadena’s Grist & Toll, if you so desire. Our fruit is sourced from the Santa Monica Farmers Market (and with it, we make the jam you’ll use to stuff your hand pies).
