We ask all the kids who attend our JUST FOR KIDS tastings what else they want to taste with us, and the common answer is CHEESE (second only to candy, and c’mon, that’s pretty awesome for cheese). We’re calling all budding cheesemongers to join us for a delicious introduction to the world of cheese! In this JUST FOR KIDS tasting, we’ll explore the world of cheese by sampling and learning about different styles of cheese. We’ll talk about all the basics of cheese, including how cheese is made and what makes each style unique. It’s going to be so gouda (sorry for the cheesy pun. oops, we did it again! we’re just cracking ourselves up so we won’t be blue!)

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.
