A little bit about Wanda: Wanda Beaver grew up in St. Catharines, Ontario, in the heart of Niagara's Fruitland. She baked her first pie at the tender age of nine, using the cherries she picked in her backyard and her grandmother's crimper. By the time she was ready to graduate from Ontario College of Art, she was riding the TTC across Toronto, delivering so many pastries and desserts they exceeded subway capacity.
Today, Wanda still bakes the comfort of home into each and every bite at her Kensington Market bakery called, Wanda's Pie in the Sky. Her staff of happy pie-folk produces over 1,200 assorted goods every week!
This past November, Wanda joined us at the Bonnie Gordon School to teach our students the secret ingredients behind her delicious pies. Here are a couple pictures from the class.
A SECOND CHANCE! Wanda will be back at the Bonnie Gordon School early 2010 to teach another pie class. Stay tuned for more details.
