With berries, peaches, and cherries all at the farmers’ markets right now, it is absolutely the season for baking pies. At an upcoming Oaktown Spice Shop workshop, you can learn how to craft beautiful summer fruit pies at home from Two Chicks in the Mix, the Oakland pop-up bakery helmed by two Black women who prioritize organic and local ingredients. You’ll get step-by-step instructions and glean tricks for making pie crusts work for you. Students will take home a booklet of recipes as well as spices from Oaktown Spice Shop and pie filling that you’ll make in class to turn into a pie or crisp later — and you’ll also get to enjoy a slice or two of pie during the workshop. If you’re more interested in eating pie than baking pie, Two Chicks in the Mix pop up at the Albany location of Oaktown Spice Shop every first day of the month.
