Just because you are a kid doesn't mean that you have to eat plain, ol' soft white bread (but we like that too!) Come to this class that is JUST FOR KIDS and we'll explore some of the many breads that are made by Zingerman's Bakehouse. Real artisan bakers craft sourdough, rye, farm, paesano and other breads using traditional methods and flavorful ingredients and we'll taste them all and more! And by more, we mean bread with chunks of dark chocolate! Did we just say bread with chocolate? Oh yeah, we did!
