Our Deli meat counter is busy all day long, slicing and wrapping delicious meats from around the world. In this JUST FOR KIDS tasting, we’re going to expand your palette beyond the ordinary turkey and ham that you might find on the sandwich in your lunchbox. We’ll learn about the variety of meats made around the world - from Italian prosciutto from Italy to Hungarian salami - and what makes the ones we bring here to the Deli different from what you might find at the grocery store. And best yet … we’ll taste them all!

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.

*We're sorry. Our repeat class discount does not apply to November Thanksgiving pie classes.

Chef Ji Hye Kim is very committed to Michigan farmers. The menu at Miss Kim is a showcase for seasonal and local produce. Being a woman chef, Ji Hye will be the first to admit that when it comes to woman farmers she feels a certain esprit de corps - women thriving in what has traditionally been a man's domain.

Join us for this very special dinner featuring The Land Loom, Songbird Farm, Goetz Greenhouse and Family Farm and TamChop Farms. Feast on inspired dishes featuring the incredible produce of three Michigan farms, each led by women. Best of all, meet the women behind the farms and and join their conversation about what it means to be a farmer, and a woman in the world of farming.

The evening will feature three incredible food and beverage experiences highlighting our summer menu as well as signature farm dishes. The event will be designed in collaboration with Detroit Design Co. to create an elegant and laid back garden party atmosphere.

The Pergola: Under the pergola lights, guests will enjoy a bountiful selection of farm fresh vegetable crudité, charcuterie and a selection of Zingerman’s Creamery cheeses and Bakehouse breads.

Chef’s Garden: The chef’s garden will feature wood-fired pizzas with farm-made heirloom tomato sauce topped with Zingerman’s Creamery cheese and delicious vegetables pulled from the garden.

The Smokehouse: Summer is not complete without indulging in a little Americana barbecue, featuring smoked meats cooked on the outdoor grill and savory sides, guests will delight in a timeless summer tradition.

The Dessert: Balance all that savory with a medley of sweets at the dessert station, including a rhubarb crumble custard, butterscotch pudding and Cornman Farms’ signature s’mores.

Each station will have light soups and sides, as well as farm fresh cocktails crafted in collaboration with Norden Aquavit!
