We're here to show you how easy and fun it can be to make New York-style and Chicago-style pizza recipes. We'll fire up our wood-fired oven to BAKE! them and give you plenty of pizza samples in class.

One of our most popular classes because we teach you Zingerman's beloved croissant recipe. There are very few places in the world outside of France where you can get a good, truly flaky, buttery croissant. Zingerman’s Bakehouse is one of them. There are some tricks but it’s mostly about taking the time to do it right. And when you smell and taste these treats, you’ll be happy that you did. In this class you’ll learn the basic techniques of creating traditional butter laminated dough. You'll make our plain butter croissant recipe in class, as well as almond and chocolate filled!

You'll leave BAKE! with our croissant recipe, the knowledge to recreate it at home, a dozen croissants you made in class, croissant dough to bake later and great coupons.
**You may want to bring a cooler to put your take-home croissant dough in, if you are traveling more than an hour to attend class.
