Learn Zingerman's Bakehouse's traditional French baguette recipe in one of our best classes for new bakers. Most commercial bread labeled “baguette” bears no resemblance to the traditional French bread that Parisian bakers first developed around 1920. When a law went into effect forbidding them from starting to work before 4 a.m., they began baking the long thin loaves that are synonymous with French baking today. We teach you to make the traditional French baguette recipe—starting with a flavorful poolish, hand rolling your dough, and ending with a very crisp crust surrounding a soft, holey interior. Imagine serving breakfast to out-of-town guests and bringing out a perfect baguette that they swear must have been airlifted from Paris.

You'll leave BAKE! with our French baguette recipe, the knowledge to recreate it at home, four French baguettes you made in class, dough to
bake later 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.

A Korean Tradition, a kimchi-making class & a strolling dinner, all wrapped up in community, conversation and fun!


To celebrate our first birthday, we’re hosting our first annual MissKimJang. And inviting Melissa Robinson, Fermentation Revivalist, to join the party!

As old as kimchi, KimJang is an annual Korean tradition where communities come together to make and share massive amounts of Kimchi! We invite you to join us for our very own version - MissKimJang. Chef Ji Hye Kim will kick off the event by sharing her deep personal and culinary knowledge of kimchi and KimJang. Then she’ll lead you through making your very own batch of Kimchi, community style. We’ll have a strolling dinner laid out for you, so you can eat, mingle and share stories with your kimchi compadres. Our bar will be primed and ready, should you want to buy an original cocktail or beverage to really round out the evening. You’ll head home armed with a jar of freshly made kimchi and the know-how to ferment it to perfection!

Join us. We can’t revive this tradition without you - OUR community.
