Seasonal Pies Luncheon & Workshop with Odessa Piper

August 23, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Since our last luncheon & workshop, Tastes of Summer, was such a success, we’ve invited Chef Odessa Piper back to demonstrate her recipes for sweet and savory pies at an extra, grand finale summer event on the farm!

James Beard Award-winning Chef Odessa Piper has discovered delicious combinations of seasonal ingredients encased in pies and tarts. Following a beautiful farm luncheon featuring Odessa’s recipes, she will share and demonstrate her secrets for these fabulous dishes.

Perfect preparation for Thanksgiving and the winter holidays!

Wow your friends and family with deliciously flakey crusts and exciting, new fillings.

Luncheon served at 12:45
Herbed Phyllo canapés with Bug Hill Farm Za’atar and Roast Tomatoes
Parmesan Cups filled with salad of whole leaf herbs, autumn raspberries, creamy French Feta, and Bug Hill Farm Berry Shrub Vinaigrette
Peach caramel Hickorynut Tarts

Farm tour at 1:45
Experience Bug Hill’s gardens, perennial plantings, and farm store. Participants will have the opportunity to sample from the variety of products we make on the farm.

Workshop demonstrations at 2:15
Odessa will share how dishes from the luncheon menu were made, providing recipes for delicious ways to encase fruits, herbs, and vegetables of the season in a variety of pies.

She will cover tricks to tame difficult phyllo pastry into a reliable dough for canapés and tarts. Participants will also make serving cups out of parmesan cheese with a crisp, salty casing to compliment an entree salad of herbs and berries.
