The St. Louis Post-Dispatch Let’s Eat profiles Cindy Higgerson, a Kitchen Conservatory class taker, who said, “I’m not a baker, and up until about six years ago, I couldn’t make pie crusts to save my life. It wasn’t until I took one of Anne Cori’s classes at Kitchen Conservatory (that) I found out that I was always overworking the dough.”
