In 2017, you'll make Bakehouse white bread, Margaret's Sweet Wheat, and Cornbread.

New in 2018!
For most people, the phrase “American bread” conjures some unfortunate stereotypes: most are bland, wheat bread is dry, and cornbread is just for sopping up chili. In this class, you’ll taste just how good American breads can be. You’ll learn how we make our tasty Boston Brown bread and tender biscuits; discover a 100% whole wheat bread so sweet, Bakehouse founder Frank Carollo named it after his daughter Margaret; and bake our tasty, slightly sweet Northern style cornbread. Get plenty of hands-on practice at mixing, kneading and shaping your loaves too. Once you’ve taken this class, you’ll never have to settle for stereotypes again!
You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, 3 loaves of bread and 12 biscuits you made in class and great coupons.

Hey kids! You've been kindly suggesting to us for awhile that we offer a JUST FOR KIDS sandwich tasting. We haven't been ignoring you, we promise. Drum roll please ... we are super excited to announce that are going to Explore the World of Sandwiches with our very own Sandwich Chef, Laura! You will learn to taste like an expert as we work our way through some of our favorite sandwich fixins and combinations. We've got stories to share about how we name our sandwiches (like who is Sherman and why was he so sure of his choice?) and what makes our sandwich ingredients stand out from the rest.

We think kids ages 4-14 would most enjoy this tasting. We will not be eating whole sandwiches, but tasting some ingredients and a few sandwich bites. 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!

A galette is a fancy French word for a free form tart. It sounds and looks impressive, but we’ll show you how to master this rustic but elegant pastry. First we’ll start with an important building block, mixing, rolling and shaping a basic butter pie dough. Then we’ll use it create individual savory galettes filled with herbed goat cheese (from Zingerman’s Creamery) and sliced tomatoes. Then we’ll bake a gorgeous large sweet galette - with almond frangipane and seasonal fruit (apple in March-June, peach in July-Aug). These are the recipes to roll out at your next dinner party.
You’ll leave BAKE! With our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, all the food you made in class and great coupons.

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 (May-Sept: blueberry and lemon chess/ Oct-Apr: 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.
