North Seattle cooking lessons: learn to make pie at Irwin’s, vegan cooking and homemade granola at local grocers

Limited spots are available for a baking lesson with Linda at the Green Lake Irwin’s Bakery location.  The lesson is Tuesday, November 8th from 6pm to 8pm, and costs $50 per person or $70 for a couple. You can prepay and reserve your spot by calling (206) 985-9410.  But hurry – only 10 spots are available.

Learn how to make Irwin’s marrionberry pie, from the flaky crust to the signature filling.  After the lesson, enjoy an espresso and a slice of pie on the house.  For those attending the lesson, bring a 9″ ceramic or glass pie plate.

Interested in other cooking/baking lessons?  Keep an eye on the Roosevelt Whole Foods and Green Lake PCC, both of which offer cooking lessons on a regular basis.  November 14th, Whole Foods is offering a course in vegan holiday cooking, taught by Sara Beth of Mighty-O Donuts fame.  This class is limited to 15 people, and you can reserve your spot by calling (206) 985-1500 (class is $25/person).

November 11th, learn how to make your own tasty granola at the Green Lake PCC.  PCC cooking classes fill up extremely quickly, so reserve your spot online right away.  The cost is $35 for members, and $40 for non-members.


Irwin’s Bakery set to open early May in Green Lake

I reported back in early March that tenant improvements had begun on the new spot for Irwin’s Bakery in Green Lake (301 NE 65th Street, across from the Latona Pub).  Now, word from Irwin’s is that they’ll be open the first week of May.

Irwin’s Bakery tweeted today that they are just finishing some tile and trim work and are almost ready to open.  Originally, they had hoped for a mid-April opening date, but its nice to see only a small delay. 

Irwin’s will feature scones, muffins and other pastries, plus a full lunch menu and kid’s menu.  And, as with its other locations, Irwin’s will have free wi-fi. 

I’ll keep you posted as I hear of a nailed-down opening date, but look for the doors to be open in about two weeks.
