The Trim Tart with Stephanie Pacitto
Thursday, March 27th
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Whole Foods Market, 3rd & Fairfax, Free

The Trim Tart will teach you how to make beautiful, fruit-filled vegan + gluten-free cobblers!  Many people shy away from pie-making - I did for years.  I could make a flaky pie dough, but rolling it out, getting it into the pie plate in one piece and crimping the sides was usually an unsuccessful venture. Plus, pie doughs are fat-laden, generally not gluten-free and not so TRIM.  And The Trim Tart loves low-calorie options to satisfy her sweet tooth!

For the conscious baker: enter cobblers!  Cobblers are delicious and make beautiful, light vegan + gluten-free desserts.  Use organic, fresh seasonal or organic frozen fruit.  The easiest cobbler can be made with a simple granola topping - assembled and baked in 30 minutes flat.  It’s a wonderful way to explore organic, seasonal fruit in a low-calorie and delicious way.  Great for home, portioning into ramekins, decorative glasses, or to bring to a party.

Skills taught: granola cobbler, cooked fruit (fresh fruit) and cooked juice (frozen fruit) methods for pies or cobblers.

About The Trim Tart: Stephanie Pacitto, BS, MS left her corporate sales career in the science and technology field to pursue her passions and become a pastry chef.  Training at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in the Patisserie and Baking program (Pasadena, CA), Stephanie launched The Trim Tart bakeshop in December 2013.  The Trim Tart specializes in vegan + gluten-free desserts that are decadent, delicious and low-calorie.  The Trim Tart is committed to organic, fair-trade ingredients and is 100% nonGMO.
