Every baker should know how to make a pie crust. You never stood on a chair to help Grandma bake a pie? You don’t get many second chances in life but here’s your opportunity to learn how she did it.

In this class we’ll deliver the techniques of how to make a pie crust the Zingerman's way- creating a flaky crust with butter, and another crust using lard and butter (no shortening allowed!). We'll teach you how to make the dough by hand, successfully roll it out, show you what par-baking a crust is, and how to crimp the edges to make your pies look beautiful. You'll make a double crust fruit pie and a single crust baked custard pie. Pie flavors for this class vary by season (Apr-Sept: blueberry and lemon chess/ Oct-Mar: apple and pecan). Roll up your sleeves and join in the fun so you can tell all your friends you learned how to make a pie crust.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to make pie crust at home, two 10" pies, one butter pie crust to bake later and great coupons.

*We're sorry. Our repeat class discount does not apply to November Thanksgiving pie classes.

Brioche is one of the most satisfyingly rich breads in the world. The scent of butter will fill the room when you learn how to make brioche dough, shape it and bake it to perfection. We’ll show you how versatile this dough is by making a traditional round tête shape, chocolate filled brioche rolls, a savory brioche roll filled with sausage, and a sweet loaf called Craquelin, the national bread of Belgium! You'll get plenty of hands-on practice in class with mixing, kneading and proofing yeasted doughs. We'll also demonstrate "bee sting" cake. You gotta try it!
