Scandinavian Saturday: Savory Potato Pies
February 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Savory Potato Pies: Yes, It’s a Thing! Potato pies are surprisingly light and delicious and easy to make. This class will include both demonstration and hands-on potato pie making. Instructor Terry Kelzer will demonstrate four delicious pies: French Potato; Leek and Goat Cheese Galette; Italian Rosemary and Scamorza Potato Pie; and an English Cheddar and Potato Pie. Then, get your hands dirty and put together and bake a mini Potato Leek Galette. While your pie is baking there will be time to taste all the pies, served with a seasonal winter salad.
Terry Kelzer, local culinary and cultural expert, brings more than 50 years of cooking and baking experience, as well as a delightful sense of humor, to all her classes. After 12 years working in restaurants and bakeries in the Twin Cities, she and her husband and young family moved to a small farm near Amery where they raised dairy goats, chickens, fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Terry says that is when her education in the basics of real food began, along with a deep appreciation for her ancestors as she had to learn to prepare, process, and preserve everything produced on the farm on an old wood cookstove. During this time, she also cooked and baked ‘from scratch’ for Head Start for 26 years. Terry’s great joy is sharing with others all the things she has learned along the way. Join us and experience both her knowledge and her joy.
