We’re revisiting an episode that originally aired as we were inching ever closer to the holidays. It occurred to us that while many of you are enjoying some much needed time off this week, you may be using some of that time to bake. We encourage that! This episode is loaded with tips bakers can use any time. “Pie Whisperer” Kate McDermott shares the tips and tricks you need to bake any pie, 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.
