Expert chefs conduct hands on instructional courses that include a lecture, demonstration, and cooking participation—wrapping up the class by eating the delicious food that you’ve made!

We are offering a giveaway to the Autumn Pie Workshop on Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for one lucky reader and their guest. Simply leave a comment on our Greer's OC Facebook or Instagram @dailydoseoc, and we will select the winner on Monday, Oct. 10.

In this class, you’ll learn how to master the perfect tender and flaky crust, sample a few pies, and and take one home for later. You will make double crust apple, pear cardamom crumble, and butterscotch apple pecan. A light meal will be served while the pies are baking. Each student makes a double crust apple pie to take home.
