Bake Seasonal Pastry with a Local Expert!
loKal’s very own Mike Simmons owned, and operated a wholesale and retail scratch bakery in the heart of Lancaster County for 20 years. Over that time, Mike developed literally hundreds of signature recipes across all classes of baking – from pies to cakes to cookies to breads, tortes, cheesecakes and more.
Learn the art of great, down-home baking in this fun and informative hands-on experience. Summer and fall in Lancaster are fantastic seasons for fresh ingredients and will put them to use, so prepare to relax and enjoy the wonderful smells and tastes in this pressure free zone. We’ll have a clinic on pie pastry – from rolling to fluting, and make a pie from scratch for you to take along. We’ll also whip up a few other personal favorites for you to take and to brag about. You might not be a baking expert when you leave, but you will know enough to dazzle your friends and family. You’ll have the chance to ask any and all of your baking questions, and you’ll depart with a bunch of goodies, a head full of new baking knowledge, and most importantly, a newly created memory of a great experience.
