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.
Experience three classics from Detroit institutions that have been around since the 1920s and 1940s. Our own principal Dan was born and bred in the "D" and these foods are a beloved part of his memories there. Together we'll bake Detroit style deep dish pizza with caramelized cheese edges baked in a blue steel pan, spiced almond cookies in the traditional windmill shape and a family favorite long john coffeecake with butterscotch, walnuts and streusel. Get a little piece of history and a big bite of flavor, along with plenty of hands-on practice and tips for mastering these new recipes.
