We’re mixin’ it up with some serious bakers this week on Seasoned! “Pie Whisperer” Kate McDermott shares the tips and tricks you need to bake any pie this holiday, as well as how to use all your senses to bake great pies. Yes, bubbling fruit does make a sound you’ll learn to recognize. And, we highlight two new local bakeries you may not have heard of yet. Le Bánh Patisserie delivers French cakes and pastries to your door, and Kneads in Westport mills its own flour.
