Learn to make our Jewish rye bread and black magic brownies, old-time favorites; and hummingbird cake, a new favorite with pineapple, pecan, coconut, banana, and cream cheese frosting. Find out what a rye sour is and the secrets behind our rye bread's flavor. We’ll serve our deli meats and sandwich fixinsto go with your bread and end the class with iconic Zingerman’s treats: a sandwich, pickle, brownie, and a toast to many years of great customers.
