Event Overview

Everybody likes pie. That said, not everybody can make it right. Want to learn with the experts? Where to start? Well, if you are a well-seasoned pie maker or missed learning this time-honored skill when you were young, you will find some hints here. Great pie is waiting for you at Peacemaker and Sidney Street Cafe but why not learn how to make your own and impress your friends and family.

In this hands-on 2-hour class you'll taste pie (obviously!), observe pie crust making, rolling and crimping. Then each participant will pair off to make their own pie to take home from scratch. Be sure to bring something to transport your pie!

Bob Zugmaier

Top rated icon TOP RATED

Chef Robert Zugmaier (or Bob, as he is known to the team) joined Sidney Street Cafe in 2008 after graduating from L’Ecole Culinaire in St Louis, MO, and honing his skills as a line cook at the now-closed Colossus Restaurant. He began as “the salad guy” and trained in various stations throughout the kitchen under Chef/ Owner Kevin Nashan. When the role of Pastry Chef became available and Nashan was interviewing outside prospects, Zugmaier decided to try out and eventually earned the title in 2011. The switch from savory to sweet proved to be a successful one, as he was recently nominated for Food & Wine’s “The People’s Best New Pastry Chef 2013” and listed in Sauce magazine’s 2013 “Ones to Watch.”

Part of a family of passionate home cooks and having worked in restaurants since age 16, Zugmaier‘s desserts are both modern and comforting. The total creative freedom he has at Sidney Street Cafe allows him to experiment with cutting edge techniques, while also creating dishes that diners can relate to and connect with. His savory background is reflected in desserts like Red Velvet with beets, dill, and goat cheese, or Peach Cobbler with lardo.

Born and raised in St. Louis, Zugmaier is proud to be a vital member of the team at Sidney Street Cafe, a restaurant at the forefront of the city’s (and the Midwest’s) burgeoning food scene. When he’s not in the kitchen, he can usually be found enjoying quality time with his wife and their two children.

    Chef Bob is a great teacher. The class was informative, the peach pie turned out delicious, and he provided tasty snacks to eat while the pie was baking.
