Those with a sweet tooth and a “hunger” for knowledge are invited to register for night classes at UT’s Culinary Institute.

The fall 2012 baking series, which begins September 18, will include courses on breakfast pastries, cookies, pies, and tarts. The series will be led by Chef Heather Pennypacker, who formerly worked at Deerpark Restaurant at Biltmore Estates, where she managed all aspects of the pastry department, from breads to wedding cakes.

All classes will be held from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the UT Culinary Institute in the UT Visitors’ Center building at 2712 Neyland Drive. Classes are $189 each and are open to the public.

The classes offered in the baking series are:
