Take the comic timing of Lucille Ball, mix in the baking skills of Martha Stewart and add in the hulking stature of Julia Child and you have Bertha Mason, the Hausfrau of the Heartland.  

Armed with vintage aprons and family cookbooks, Bertha Mason dishes out campy sass while teaching folks the forgotten art of pie baking. Bertha brings her Midwestern charm to private parties, church suppers, gay brunches, and clown funerals.

Since 1997, Bertha has baked her way across the USA, cooking up fun in New York, Chicago, Seattle, P-town, Atlanta, Washington, D.C,  and numerous all-you can eat buffets.


Baking with Bertha performs and hosts Pie Parties in LA.

Pie Baking Parties

Book Baking with Bertha for exciting delicious pie baking parties.  Bertha comes to place armed with her recipe box, aprons, and campy knowledge of pie baking.

Parties include pie recipes, fun, games, instructions, and a good time for all.
