Pels Pie Co.
Lefferts Garden, Brooklyn
When Alison Pels started Pels Pie Co. in 2015 we doubt she imagined just a few years later she’d have one of the most talked about pie spots in Brooklyn. Today, not only is she serving up one of the hottest spots to devour pie, but she just may have the best pie making class in the city. Whether you’ve tried your hand at pies before or the thought of kneading dough has only been “pie in the sky,” you’re sure to take home a few lessons (and delectables) in “Pie Making.” Over the course of three hours you’ll learn everything you’ll need to make one of ten of Pels’ pie recipes from scratch. Craft the perfect crust by hand or food processor, then roll your dough, shape it, crimp it, fill it, and bake it. Of course, for your hard work you won’t leave empty handed. In fact, you’ll leave with your entire pie and enough crust to make a couple more at home. We know it’s just for practicing your newly found skills, and certainly wouldn’t judge you if you had to consume three pies over the course of the following week… you know, just to make sure you’re doing it right.
