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.

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.
