BOOKED! Southern Basics Baking Class - In NASHVILLE!

Folks. I received a bundle of loving (albeit, slightly perfumed with feelings of betrayal) emails asking Why on God's Green Earth would I do something as rude as take my Southern ass up to New York City and show them all the secrets and skills of a Southern Baker - without first doing so in my lovely home of Nashville. And you are right. You're totally right. Really, how could I?! (And, ps., I love you guys). SO! Before I pour on the details about how truly incredible New York was (coming very, very soon! And, it really was one of the best times of my life), I thought I would first announce that I've set a date for my next Baking Class - in Nashville! So. Please join me on Sunday, September 8th at 2pm until 530pm. We will cover pie dough, biscuit dough, building hand pies and making (wait for it...) my Husk buttermilk pie. I can't wait to sip champagne with you dolls and talk about how badass butter and flour and salt can be together. Can't WAIT!


Come learn the secrets of a Southern Baker with Lisa Donovan on Sunday, Sept. 8th for a Southern Basics Cooking Class. Biscuits, pie dough, hand pies and her well loved Husk Buttermilk Pie will be covered. Supplies will be provided and you get to take home everything you make! Seats will be limited to ten students.

  • When: Sunday, September 8th, 2pm-530pm
  • Where: location TBD
  • Cost: $75 per person
