Any foodie will tell you that spices are an important key to their culinary masterpieces. We don't think that these complex and potent ingredients are only for the grown ups in the room. Come to this JUST FOR KIDS tasting if you want to SPICE UP YOUR LIFE! You will learn to taste spices like an expert as we explore the world of some of our favorite spices. We'll introduce you to these spices, tell you stories about our friends from Montreal who roam the world in search of the best ones, and learn about the spices that are on the shelves in our deli kitchen. And the best part is, we're going to taste them!

What we’ll be tasting:
• Dukkah spice with olive oil (dipping sauce for bread).
• Zingerman’s dill pickle potato chips (dill, mustard seed). They’re dill-icious!
• Parmesan pepper bread (Zingerman’s 5-Star pepper blend).
• Curried turkey (Trinidad curry spice blend).
• Rice pudding (vanilla and cinnamon).
• Vanilla gelato (vanilla).

We think kids ages 4-14 would most enjoy this tasting. Parents are welcome to attend at no charge and observe on the sidelines. All participants will receive a 20% off coupon to use after the tasting to eat and/or shop at the Deli. Please include your child's name, age, and any allergy information in the comments field when you register. Thank you!

We created this class years ago to celebrate Zingerman's Delicatessen's anniversary (they opened way back in 1982!). Learn to make our Jewish rye bread and black magic brownies, old time favorites; and hummingbird cake, a new favorite with pineapple, pecan, coconut, banana and cream cheese frosting. Find out what a rye sour is and the secrets behind our rye bread's flavor. We’ll serve our deli meats and sandwich fixins' to go with your bread and end the class
with iconic Zingerman’s treats: a sandwich, a pickle, a brownie and a
toast to many years of great customers.
You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, a satisfied tummy, great coupons, and everything you made in class: a loaf of rye bread, rye sour, hummingbird cake, and black magic brownies.

Do you love custards and puddings? Love buttery pie crusts? Eat whipped cream by the spoonful? Yes! Yes! and Yes! Then this class is for you.

Join us to make two of our Bakehouse best: chocolate cream pie and coconut cream pie. We’ll also demonstrate our popular key lime pie. Since it’s baked it’s not really a “cream” pie but it’s definitely creamy and delicious.

In this class, you'll learn how to make a
buttery and flaky pie crust from scratch (no shortening allowed!), how
to roll and bake the crust, and how to make the chocolate cream pie filling and coconut cream pie filling from scratch. For the key lime pie demonstration, we'll show you how to make a buttery graham cracker crust, and the rich, tart filling. We'll also demonstrate fresh whipped cream to top the pies.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one 10" chocolate cream pie and one 10" coconut cream pie and great coupons.
