What you'll learn in this pie class:

A tender, flaky, and light crust is what often separates a good pie from a great one! In this class, experienced ICE pastry chefs teach you how to make that elusive perfect pie crust---great for sweet or savory pies. 

Under their expert instruction, you’ll learn the same techniques and tips used by ICE career pastry grads at New York's top restaurants. You'll make and work with Pâte Brisée---which you'll then use to make your very own Double Crust Apple Pie from scratch.


We serve wine in our classes. It is against our policy for guests to bring in any type of alcoholic beverages.
School Notes:
Please note that a valid ID is required for entry into ICE's building.

Upon arrival to 225 Liberty Street, proceed to the security desk on the 2nd floor located next to Hudson Eats to check in.

If this is your first time visiting ICE, you may want to leave yourself 30 minutes to find your way to our lobby at 225 Liberty Street.

We will begin checking guests in 15 minutes before the class start time. Please note that classes will enjoy the menu at the end of class. While a snack platter is offered in both morning and evening classes, you may want to consider a light snack before joining us for class. Additionally, for those enrolled in a pastry or knife skills class, a meal is not planned so we recommend bringing a snack. Class menus subject to change.

Refund Policy
Two weeks withdrawal notice is required for a refund; but please note a transaction fee will be deducted from the refund for each and every class seat registration that is cancelled by the registrant/student based on the following scale: classes up to $125 will incur a $20 fee, classes in the $126-$350 range will have a $30 fee, classes valued over $351 will incur a $50 fee. When a class is dropped 3-13 days prior to the start date, only school class credit will be issued, and the corresponding transaction fee will be deducted. Rescheduling a class entails a cancellation and, therefore, a transaction fee will still be charged to customers. There are no refunds or school credit issued when fewer than 48 hours notice from the class start date is given. In case of class cancellation, all students will be notified and a full refund will be given.
