Event Series Event Series (See All)

Wed., November 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Join Maya-Camille Broussard, cookbook author, star of Netflix’s Bake Squad, and owner of Chicago-based Justice of the Pies for a demo from her kitchen. Just in time for Thanksgiving, Chef Maya-Camille will share her love of pie, stories of those that inspired her, and tips and tricks to help you make the perfect pie.

Broussard uses her love of food to have a positive impact on the local community. She offers an “I Knead Love” workshop several times each year for children from lower-income communities to learn basic cooking skills, healthy eating habits, and nutrition. She founded Justice of the Pies in 2014, to honor her late father, The Pie Master. The bakery with a social mission has partnered with many Chicago area charities to provide meals for communities on the South and West sides and with Frontline Foods, to provide food from restaurants for front-line workers during the COVID pandemic. Her first book, Justice of the Pies: Sweet and Savory Pies, Quiches and Tarts Plus Inspirational Stories from Exceptional People, was published in 2022. In the summer of 2023, Broussard opened her first Justice of the Pies storefront on the South Side of Chicago to rave reviews. Being hearing impaired, Broussard works hard to set an example for young bakers by telling the story of her struggles and success, and works to celebrate the atypical through her baking.
