All classes are taught by Kate Lebo, award-winning baker and writer. Her poems appear in Best New Poets, AGNI, and Poetry Northwest among other journals. Her food writing, recipes, and commentary have been featured in the Washington Post, 94.9 KUOW, City Arts Magazine, and many blogs, including this one. She is the recipient of a Nelson Bentley Fellowship, a grant from 4Culture, and numerous writing residencies. 

After earning her MFA from the University of Washington in June 2012, Kate opened Pie School, her cliche-busting pastry academy. She also hosts a semi-regular, semi-secret social called Pie Stand at galleries, bars, and private homes across the country.

In October 2013, Chin Music Press will publish her first book, A Commonplace Book of Piebased on her best-selling zine of the same name.

She has ambivalent feelings about pie a la mode. She adores rhubarb.
