Drop Bertha a line to reserve tickets


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.

Currently, Bertha bakes, performs, and delivers Pie-Grams in NYC.
