Hop on the tahini train! We’ve been experimenting in the kitchen with the latest culinary craze, tahini (rich sesame paste). And we’re using a particularly great organic tahini we sourced from Cyprus. In this class you’ll bake tahini butter cookies, tahini banana bread made with Michigan wheat flour and black sesame seeds, and tahini filled croissants. (Due to time constraints, we will provide you with already baked croissants to fill.) They'll add excitement and flavor to your baker's recipe box.

You’ll leave BAKE! With our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, all the food you made in class and great coupons.

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.

Ah, the pizza pie! It's a cornerstone of the American diet, and yet so few folks actually make pizza at home! We're here to show you how easy and fun it can be to make New York-style and Chicago-style pizza recipes. We'll fire up our wood-fired oven to BAKE! them and give you plenty of pizza samples in class. We will also demonstrate Pizza Bianca, a flavorful Italian bread that is a great accompaniment to any dinner. The next time you reach for the phone to order pizza delivery, you'll remember it's fun and a lot more flavorful to make it yourself.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one New York-style pizza, one Chicago-style pizza, two New York-style pizza doughs, one Chicago-style pizza dough and great coupons. Not to mention a full tummy from plenty of pizza snacking in class!

One of our most popular classes because we teach you Zingerman's beloved croissant recipe. There are very few places in the world outside of France where you can get a good, truly flaky, buttery croissant. Zingerman’s Bakehouse is one of them. There are some tricks but it’s mostly about taking the time to do it right. And when you smell and taste these treats, you’ll be happy that you did. In this class you’ll learn the basic techniques of creating traditional butter laminated dough. You'll make our plain butter croissant recipe in class, as well as almond and chocolate filled!

You'll leave BAKE! with our croissant recipe, the knowledge to recreate it at home, a dozen croissants you made in class, croissant dough to bake later and great coupons.
**You may want to bring a cooler to put your take-home croissant dough in, if you are traveling more than an hour to attend class.

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.
