The Lord’s Kitchen, 85 Spruce St N Bsmt , Timmins
We look forward to warmly welcoming guests to the 7th Inspired Cooking workshop in support of Anti-Hunger Coalition Timmins (ACT)! Dr. Erin Thomson will be our featured guest chef, shedding light and love on the delicious art of homemade pie!No food is more imbued with creativity, love — and a fair bit of mystique — than pie! If you crave the accomplishment of creating something beautiful and tasty with your hands, but tremble with trepidation at the mystery that is sometimes pastry, then this is the workshop for you! Participants will have hands-on practice with pointers and techniques for making a flaky pastry for cooked double crust pies. Erin will also demonstrate techniques to make fancy decorative tarts with cut-outs, special edges and lattice work. She’ll also show how to blind bake a pie shell for delicious desserts like custard, cream or curd pies. And as a bonus, Erin will demonstrate and prepare vanilla custard accompaniments for tasting! Participants will take home recipes, pie and the enormous satisfaction of learning a skill they can use to share love with their family and friends.
Proceeds to support the food security work of Anti-Hunger Coalition Timmins.

*Doors open at noon.

About 80% of the animals in our care are unwanted pets or seized animals and we do not take animals from the wild to utilize in these programs. We do have some animals that were born at our facility or other facilities in Canada but 100% of the animals we receive calls about that are eligible to be released are released 100% of the time. Other animals in our care that are appropriate for programs such as these are utilized for fun, thought provoking, educational programs promoting responsible pet ownership and conservation. We hope you have a chance to see firsthand what we are all about.
