Join "The Pie Guy" as he demos one of his unique recipes--raspberry rhubarb pie!

Gary Stuard, "The Pie Guy!", was born and raised in Texas. He and his husband of 16 years moved to Vermont in late 2019 in order to make their home in the Green Mountain State. His mother and her mother, Grandma Creagh, made the most incredible home baked pies, which made a deep and lasting impression on Gary, as their pies were beautiful and delicious expressions of their love for family and friends. It is their approach to pie baking that inspires Gary in his pie/tart baking, as well as his desire to share their skills and love of great food with others.

Class will be held on the Microsoft Teams platform, and joining instructions will be sent to participants in advance.

City Market, Downtown store

With this interactive and hands-on tour, participants will learn how to shop for affordable, fresh, long-lasting, and nutritious foods at City Market. We will begin by exploring the Produce and Bulk departments, learning a simple method for finding the best value on fruits, vegetables, grains, and beans by paying attention to the price per pound. Then we will enter the Grocery aisles and Perishables coolers and learn to become savvy label readers as we shop for nourishing, long-lasting foods that contain 5 ingredients or fewer. No matter what kind of diet you follow, these pennywise tools will help you stock your kitchen with a variety of healthy, local, and even organic foods and develop a better understanding of Co-op sales.

If the date and time above doesn’t work for your schedule, or if you would feel more comfortable with a one-on-one individualized tour, please contact our Outreach and Education team at learn@citymarket.coop.

City Market, South End store

Pysanka (plural: Pysanky) is the Ukrainian word for a colorful, decorated egg using alternating layers of beeswax and dye (similar to batik). A stylus, or Kistka, is used to draw wax lines and shapes directly onto the egg. In this class you’ll learn about the symbolism of the shapes and colors used on traditional Ukrainian eggs, and the instructor will teach you everything you need to know to decorate your own egg (or two, if time allows) - no prior experience necessary! This relaxing, creative session includes eggs and the use of all equipment, including electric and traditional wooden Kistky, beeswax, and dyes.

Susan Essex Luce lives in the South End of Burlington and has been ‘writing’ Pysanky for over 20 years. She has taught and studied German, Latin, Spanish, and Italian. Her classes and camps combine language-learning, food, crafts and cultural traditions from around the world. She believes that everyone is an artist at heart, and hopes that her passion for art (and life!) will inspire others to explore and expand their horizons.
