Strawberry Pie Workshop at The Bakehouse

In the cold winter months, dreaming of warmer days, we remembered. Strawberry season is coming! When we realized the Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival was in mid-April, we knew we had to plan the most amazing pie workshop yet that weekend, using nothing but strawberries sourced right here from Louisiana.

Our talented attendees gathered that Saturday and Sunday to learn to bake the ultimate strawberry pie. We're talking pie crust from scratch and everything! They diced butter. They rolled dough. They sliced strawberries. Everyone put in some hard work, and the result, needless to say, was delicious.

If you find yourself overloaded with quickly ripening Louisiana strawberries this spring, we strongly recommend turning them into a pie and sharing your creation with those you love. That's what it's all about!
