Virtual programming

Join "The Pie Guy" as he demos one of his unique recipes for the holidays--steamed persimmon pudding with lemon sauce!

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.
