Pie Baking Retreat with Detroit’s Sister Pie

Sister Pie Detroit | Leland Lodge Pie Retreat

Over the last few months, we have been thinking of ways to encourage the community to spend more time enjoying the Leland Lodge in the quieter months.  Afterall, we have a wonderful lobby with a cozy fire, plenty of space for Bingo, Mahjong, Euchre, ping-pong, you name it, in the Leelanau Room, a big kitchen that can accommodate just about anything, a gorgeous golf-course-turned-winter-sledding hill view and a strong desire to keep the cheer alive after the hustle of summer subsides.

In the process of thinking of different ways to open our doors to the community, we began to mull over the idea of using our big event kitchen as a space for cooking classes and retreats in the fall and winter months.   Around the same time, we noticed an Instagram post from drool-worthy Detroit Pie Maker Sister Pie offering pie dough classes and a lightbulb went off.  A pie making retreat! Of course! We reached out to lovely owner Lisa Ludwinski, brainstormed a bit, ironed out some details and started to get excited.

It is without further ado that we like to announce our first ever Pie Baking Retreat with Detroit’s Pie Queen – Sister Pie November 7th & 8th at the Leland Lodge!

The November 7th & 8th 2-part class will span two days and be broken up into two packages – Local Bakers and Visiting Bakers.

Both groups will receive the following as part of their package deal:

  • 2-day hands-on classes with instruction from Sister Pie’s Lisa & Anji (Part 1: Dough Part 2: Filling)
  • The Coveted Sister Pie Dough Recipe (just in time for the holidays!)
  • Pie Ingredients
  • Rolling Pin, Mixing Bowl and Pie Tools
  • Lunch (Day 2)
  • A Special Lodge Gift
  • A Finished Pie
  • New Friends!

Visiting Bakers will also enjoy a stay at the Lodge including continental breakfast and a chance to explore the natural and historical beauty that is Fishtown Leland.
