Learn Zingerman's Bakehouse's traditional French baguette recipe in one of our best classes for new bakers. Most commercial bread labeled “baguette” bears no resemblance to the traditional French bread that Parisian bakers first developed around 1920. When a law went into effect forbidding them from starting to work before 4 a.m., they began baking the long thin loaves that are synonymous with French baking today. We teach you to make the traditional French baguette recipe—starting with a flavorful poolish, hand rolling your dough, and ending with a very crisp crust surrounding a soft, holey interior. Imagine serving breakfast to out-of-town guests and bringing out a perfect baguette that they swear must have been airlifted from Paris.

You'll leave BAKE! with our French baguette recipe, the knowledge to recreate it at home, four French baguettes you made in class, dough to
bake later and great coupons.

Crackers are the humble underdogs of the baking world. Unassuming looking, they pack a powerful flavor punch and deliver an addictive texture experience. Join us to make cheesy pepper squares, whole wheat thins, seedy garlic crisps, and rice bites. They'll soon be your new favorite additions to salads, soups and cheese plates.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, eight dozen crackers you made in class (that you didn't munch on right out of the oven), and great coupons.
