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.

Have you ever wanted to know more about olive oil or wondered how Zingerman's selects the distinctive olive oils we carry? Then this JUST FOR KIDS tasting is for you! You will learn to taste olive oil like an expert as we taste our way through olive oils from across the globe. We'll learn about different types of olives, their unique flavors, how you would use these oils in your cooking at home, and why we call olive oil "liquid gold". After this class, you will for sure be dubbed a Zingerman's foodie!

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!

Hop on the tahini train! We’ve been experimenting in the kitchen with the latest culinary craze, tahini (rich sesame paste). And we’re using a particularly great organic tahini we sourced from Cyprus. In this class you’ll bake tahini butter cookies, tahini banana bread made with Michigan wheat flour and black sesame seeds, and tahini filled croissants. (Due to time constraints, we will provide you with already baked croissants to fill.) They'll add excitement and flavor to your baker's recipe box.

You might not think of tea as being a typical pairing for a slice of cheese, but the two can be exceptionally good at bringing out the best flavors of each other. Like wine, certain teas contain tannins which result in full-bodied flavors and make for a perfect accompaniment to a variety of cheeses. Our cheesemongers have teamed up with our neighbors at the Zingerman's Coffee Co. to showcase specially selected teas from Rishi that pair most deliciously with an assortment of cheeses hand-picked by our cheesemongers. Join us for this unique take on tea time!
