Learn the secrets to traditional German-style soft pretzels made with lard and dipped in lye. We will teach you how to form the crossed pretzel shape and tell you the story of why a monk decided to have this food be “in prayer.”You'll also shape the soft pretzel stick, or baguette, we make at the Bakehouse.These simple but tasty rolls are sure to become a family favorite. We'll also answer the “burning” question, “Are these dipped in the same lye used to make soap?” We'll end class tasting some warm pretzels with a little mustard and Zingerman's Creamery pimento cheese.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipe, the knowledge to recreate it at home, a dozen soft pretzels you made in class, and great coupons.

What our guests have to say about this class:

These classes are the ultimate experience! I have told so many people about it that I hope they don't take a spot before I get mine. I can't wait to make these at home! (I will not tell anyone how easy it is.) —Donna M.

I'm not afraid to try pretzels with lye now that I know the proper methods. —Dan S.

I loved the easy-going nature of the class environment and I learned a whole lot! I feel that this recipe isn't overwhelming and I'm excited to give it a shot at home! —Spencer W.
