With people spending more time at home over the last few years, there has been an increase in the amount of home-cooked meals being produced, but many home bakers are still uncomfortable with pastry. This new pie baking course launched by Stephanie Lentz from Scoop Intelligence teaches simple and versatile plant-based recipes for a variety of pies and pie crusts.

The recently launched course is open to cooks and bakers of all skill levels, including those with no experience at all. It requires no special kitchen tools or ingredients, although a kitchen scale and pastry blender or food processor is recommended.
By the end of the course, students will have learned how to make basic pie dough and effective techniques for freezing and thawing dough for future use. The course will also include instructions for several types of pie filling, including a sweet fruit pie, savory lentil pot pie, and a plant-based quiche.
After creating the pie dough, there are still many ways that a pie can be constructed. The course covers three different styles: single crust, lattice crust, and double crust. Students will also learn strategies for using pie dough scraps, so no leftover dough goes to waste.

Scoop Intelligence also offers a plant-based cooking course with Stephanie Lentz, which includes step-by-step instructions to help students operate a low-waste sustainable kitchen. Lessons include everything from meal planning and grocery shopping, to changing recipes for dietary requirements and tips for using every bit of food scrap.
The plant-based cooking course teaches 7 vegan recipes and has easy-to-follow video instructions on how to create an entire holiday meal. It also includes recipes for making vegetable broth powder and plant-based milk, with more recipes to be added in the future.
A satisfied student said, “Her class is based on her students’ interests and skill levels. She is very clear with directions and helps all of her students cook delicious meals, even me… the non-cook. Steph provided a new recipe each week, and I was excited to have a collection of tasty recipes by the end. I would highly recommend her cooking class. Not only is Steph a wonderful cook, but she’s also an excellent teacher.”
