Brooklyn-based bakers and authors, Erin Patinkin and Agatha Kulaga visited us on Saturday, November 15 for a making scones class followed by a tasting and book signing.

Making Scones Class: 10AM-Noon
In this hands-on class, Erin and Agatha guided the group through making two types of scones—Cheddar Mustard and Rosemary Currant— from scratch. They divulged all the baking tricks and tips needed to make these delicious treats at home.At the end of the class, we tasted the freshly baked creations with a selection of local jams from Shady Acres. Each person took some freshly baked scones home to share with your friends and family.

Tasting and Book Signing: 1-2PM
The recipes from the class are featured in Erin and Agatha’s new cookbook, Ovenly: Sweet and Salty Recipes from New York’s Most Creative Bakery. As self-taught, curious cooks, Agatha and Erin offer a straight-talking approach that is never too fussy and always encourages experimentation. Above all, they believe that cooking (and eating!) should be an adventure. The cookbook contains experimental yet perfected recipes for the most inventive and out-of-this-world breakfast pastries, desserts, and snacks.



Agatha Kulaga and Erin Patinkin met in a food-focused book club and immediately began to experiment in the kitchen. In 2010, the pair founded Ovenly, a creative bakery headquartered in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. For the past four years, Ovenly’s innovative sweet-savory treats have made their way into cafés, restaurants, and stores nationwide. In 2013, Ovenly was named Best Bakery in New York City by Time Out New York (Food & Drink Awards category). Ovenly: Sweet and Salty Recipes from New York’s Most Creative Bakery is their first book.
