Join us at Cornman Farms for an evening with two-time James Beard award winner, Chef Sean Sherman, as he discusses his movement to completely redefine North American cuisine through the understanding and utilization of indigenous food knowledge. In addition to hearing Chef Sherman speak, each guest will enjoy three tastings from his award-winning cookbook The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen, followed by a book signing.

About Chef Sean Sherman:
Chef Sean Sherman, Oglala Lakota, born in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, has cooked across the United States and Mexico over the past 30 years. He founded The Sioux Chef, a food education business, with a mission to help educate and make indigenous foods more accessible to as many communities as possible. In the process, The Sioux Chef is re-identifying North American Cuisine and reclaiming an important culinary culture long buried and often inaccessible.

His cookbook, "The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen" won a James Beard Foundation Book Award in 2018. This year, he was awarded a James Beard Foundation Leadership Award, which “spotlights the important and complex realms of sustainability, food justice, and public health.”

Most recently, his team founded NATIFS, an indigenous culinary non-profit organization focused on indigenous food ways education and access. 

Through his research, Chef Sean has uncovered and mapped out the foundations of the indigenous food systems through an indigenous perspective. Chef Sean has become renowned nationally and internationally in the culinary movement of indigenous foods. With an ever growing team of decolonized-minded peers, he is leading a movement to completely redefine North American cuisine through the understanding and utilization of indigenous food knowledge.

Fruit tarts are a favorite of food photographers because they look soooo sweet and fresh and just say “summertime.” When you see too many of them on the covers of glossy magazines, you start to get the idea that they’re for experts only. Don’t believe it. We’ll show you how to make the sweet and tender pâte sucrée tart shells and rich vanilla pastry cream. Then we’ll compose our tarts together, teaching you how to arrange the fruit in an artful way. Next time you see a succulent tart gracing the cover of Fine Cooking, you won’t be fooled.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one large fruit tart you made in class and great coupons.

Every baker should know how to make a pie crust. You never stood on a chair to help Grandma bake a pie? You don’t get many second chances in life, but here’s your opportunity to learn how she did it.

In this class, we’ll deliver the techniques of how to make a pie crust the Zingerman's way—creating a flaky crust with butter, and another crust using lard and butter (no shortening allowed!). We'll teach you how to make the dough by hand, successfully roll it out, show you what par-baking a crust is, and how to crimp the edges to make your pies look beautiful. You'll make a double crust fruit pie and a single crust baked custard pie. Pie flavors for this class vary by season (Apr-Sept: cherry and seasonal fruit, Oct-Mar: apple and pecan). Roll up your sleeves and join in the fun so you can tell all your friends you learned how to make a pie crust.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to make pie crust at home, two 10-inch pies, one butter pie crust to bake later and great coupons.

*We're sorry. Our repeat class discount does not apply to November Thanksgiving pie classes.
