Give a man a pizza and you can feed him for a day. Teach a man to pizza and you can feed him for a lifetime.
If that philosophy resonates for you, you can hone your pizza-making skills on March 14 (aka National Pi Day) by booking a spot at Michelin-recognized Sweetbriar, which is offering a pizza clinic. Executive Chef Bryce Shuman will walk attendees through a step-by-step process that begins with making pizza dough from scratch and ends with selecting the perfect combination of toppings.
Highlighted recipes will include: a spicy Mangalitsa pie spread with a spicy pickled chili sauce then layered with Mangalitsa ham, finished with honey and thyme; and a wild mushroom pie sauced with béchamel and topped with mushrooms, onions, and mozzarella cheese.
At the end of the demonstration, guests will be able to feast on a chef’s choice of pizza as well as wine, which is included in the ticketed experience.
Tickets for the event, which will run from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., can be purchased at Tock. The price per person is $75.
