At Zingerman’s Bakehouse we bake bagels as they were a long time ago - crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, with big flavor, and a hole you can stick your finger through. Let us teach you to make a great bagel in your own home. You'll mix your dough from scratch, knead it by hand, shape it into rings, then boil and bake your bagels to get just the right texture. You'll choose your seeds too. We'll also show you traditional bialys, a crispy chewy roll with a center of slow roasted onions and poppy seeds. In class we'll snack on some bagels along with fresh cream cheese from our neighbor Zingerman's Creamery. This class will give you a great go-to recipe. Who wouldn't be impressed waking up to fresh baked bagels? After all, better bagels could make for better weekends!

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, two dozen bagels/bialys you made in class and great coupons.

Do you love custards and puddings? Love buttery pie crusts? Eat whipped cream by the spoonful? Yes! Yes! and Yes! Then this class is for you.

Join us to make two of our Bakehouse best: chocolate cream pie and coconut cream pie. We’ll also demonstrate our popular key lime pie. Since it’s baked it’s not really a “cream” pie but it’s definitely creamy and delicious.

In this class, you'll learn how to make a
buttery and flaky pie crust from scratch (no shortening allowed!), how
to roll and bake the crust, and how to make the chocolate cream pie filling and coconut cream pie filling from scratch. For the key lime pie demonstration, we'll show you how to make a buttery graham cracker crust, and the rich, tart filling. We'll also demonstrate fresh whipped cream to top the pies.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one 10" chocolate cream pie and one 10" coconut cream pie and great coupons.

One of our most popular classes! Your family and house guests won't soon forget waking up to the aroma of butter, cinnamon, and muscovado brown sugar permeating the house from the fresh baked sweet rolls. Join us and find out how it's done. Learn the basic techniques of creating a sweet dough including mixing, kneading and rolling, hand-shaping your rolls, and properly proofing them. We'll also demonstrate how to make pecan sticky buns, a staff favorite. Wait until you taste these warm from the oven in class!

Fruit tarts are a favorite of food photographers because they look soooo sweet and fresh and just say “summertime.” When you see too many of them on the covers of glossy magazines, you start to get the idea that they’re for experts only. Don’t believe it. We’ll show you how to make the sweet and tender pâte sucrée tart shells and rich vanilla pastry cream. Then we’ll compose our tarts together, teaching you how to arrange the fruit in an artful way. Next time you see a succulent tart gracing the cover of Fine Cooking, you won’t be fooled.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one large fruit tart you made in class and great coupons.

You will learn the techniques for laminating rich dough with butter, make your own dough in class, and create hand-shaped danish (almond-filled bear claws, pinwheels, and pockets filled with cream cheese or fruit), each surrounded by the rich tender flaky dough that makes a good danish. Oh so delicious!
