Feb 13, 2010, Edible Alchemy hosted a pie making workshop led by the "professor of pie", Msr. Egon Schiele.

Using organic local butter, organic local whole wheat flour, organic local apples, berries, organic local squash, and organic local vegetables, DELICIOUS PIES WERE MADE!  And much fun and deliciousness was had by all.
