Event description


The tart is king this year. We are not abandoning pies with flaky crusts, but this year we love the ease of baking classic and new fillings in crunchy almond-flecked shells. Dried sour cherries give our Brandied Cherry Frangipane Tart a fruitiness that perfectly complements the frangipane filling. Ricotta cheese in a Chocolate and Orange Tart — inspired by one in Rose Carrarini's book, “Breakfast, Lunch, Tea” — creates a deliciously creamy yet surprisingly light filling that highlights the orange and chocolate flavors. Last, classic pumpkin filling is elevated with crème fraîche and bourbon (or orange juice) in our Pumpkin Tart. All three use the same crust, which we'll teach you to prep and freeze for do-ahead ease.

Please note: The November 19th class is held in coordination with Community Serving's Pie in the Sky charity event. We will donate all pumpkin tarts from this class to Community Servings. The other flavors are for your eating enjoyment!

This is a hands-on cooking class led by Milk Street instructors.
