About the Event
Join the brilliant Karen Wright (Great British Bake Off Contestant from series nine) live from Wakefiled, UK, who will teach you the skills you need to master her mini Leek and Mushroom Pies.
This class takes place on Saturday June 25th at the following times:
12pm PT / 2pm CT / 3pm ET / 8pm UK GMT
Please allow up to 2 hours for this class.
These little beauties are perfect for a picnic or a buffet and as they are made using hot water crust pastry, they are quite robust and travel well. They can of course be eaten warm as part of a main meal too so they are versatile. The pastry is made using butter so these are suitable for vegetarians but if you wish to include diced bacon or chicken in the filling that would be a great match also. This recipe makes 8.
Bake With A Legend Online Classes are an interactive experience, where we limit group sizes to around 20 to ensure an intimate online setting. Not only do you have your celebrity baker teaching you, but you also have one of our brilliant Bake With A Legend hosts who will ensure the smooth running of your experience ensuring everyone is enjoying themselves.
If you need any help at any point during the class, you’ll be encouraged to raise your hand and your baker will be virtually joining you in your own kitchen in no time to assist you!
You’ll bake along in tandem with Karen, learning many tips and tricks a long the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Karen's delicious take on the the classic English Pie. Karen will also be on hand to answer your questions, be those about baking or her experiences of being involved on such an iconic television show.
