The Culinary Program sold Thanksgiving pies around the community and throughout Summerville High. The pie flavors that were sold were apple and blackberry. The ten inch pies costed $10.

Mr. Gronert and the Baking and Pastry program thought it was a great idea to use Thanksgiving pies to show what their program is about.

“We made everything from scratch including the crust, apple filling, and streusel topping” said Mr. Gronert, pastry teacher.

“Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to show what the students can do…” said Mr. Gronert, pastry teacher.

Mr. Gronert wanted to ensure freshness in his program’s desserts.

“I got fresh apples from the mountains and the blackberries are local” said Mr. Gronert.

The culinary students enjoyed making the pies and learning new skills in the process.

“Learning the production of making pies and how easy they are to make at home was my favorite part” said Taylor Blevins, junior Pastry student.

The skills that were learned by the Baking and Pastry students was how to cut apples properly, how to make a big pie and learning how to use fresh ingredients to make your dish better.

“My favorite part about making the pies was learning what knives to use while cutting the apples and learning how much ingredients go into making a pie. And also learning how to make them at home” said Hailey Lippy, junior Pastry student.

Mr. Gronert hopes to highlight the difference between the culinary program and the pastry programs.

“The big goal is to separate the two programs, so we have more abilities for students to work on their skills” said Mr. Gronert .

Many Baking and Pastry students were excited to make Thanksgiving pies to sell around Summerville High and throughout the community.

“When I announced to the class that were going to make Thanksgiving pies, the whole class was excited to make a different kind of dish in class” said Mr. Gronert.

Mr. Gronert and the Baking and Pastries program are very excited for you to try their delicious pies as they are being sold around school. The pies will be delivered to teachers’ classrooms during the week of Thanksgiving, and the money raised will go to support the program.
