Just because you are a kid doesn’t mean that you have to eat plain, ol’ soft white bread (although we like that too!) Come to this class that is JUST FOR KIDS and we’ll Explore the World of Toast and Jam. Real artisan bakers from Zingerman's Bakehouse craft sourdough, rye, and other breads using traditional methods and flavorful ingredients. We'll taste a few of our favorites that we think make great toast. And we'll slather each slice with our favorite jams, telling stories of our favorite jam makers, and maybe trying some interesting types you may not have heard of before.
