I’m accepting new students.
Would you like to learn how to make a pie? Would you like to spend some intimate time with me in my kitchen? Come take a class. We’ll get into our aprons and maybe out of our clothes, and learn about each other. Baking is most fun when there’s a sense of community attached to it.
My helper and I will serve you tea and interview you. We will chat about your baking skills and your emotional life. Students are encouraged to open a dialogue about their experiences with baking, but also to talk about their childhoods, loves and lost loves, and their experience as Gay men in a tumultuous world.
Straight students are also accepted.
I teach each student to bake a pie from start to finish, including my recipe for a flaky, buttery, unforgettable crust. You and I will decide what pie to make beforehand, depending on what’s in season and, of course, your tastes. Classes are small, and they’re held at my Brooklyn apartment.
While the pies are in the oven we will continue to get to know one another. We can even play songs together and sing, if you like.
Everyone is encouraged to be free, and kind, and most of all just be themselves. Students are required to bring an apron, a large mixing bowl, a pastry blender and a smile.
I try to maintain the atmosphere of a small party, so I limit the number of students in my classes. Anywhere from 1 to 3 students at a time, plus me and a helper.
Rates start at $300 dollars per student per class, but if you’d like to hire me for a larger party or event, send me an email, and we’ll discuss. I’m flexible.
Classes are held at all hours, so tell me what works for you.
