We all know that whole grains can be good for us, but that’s not the only reason to eat them. With the right recipes and techniques, they can taste great, too. We’ll teach you to make Bakehouse Country Wheat bread, a whole-grain raisin bread, and a masterful multi-grain bread. This class will change how you think of whole grain bread.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, six loaves of bread you made in class and great coupons.

At Zingerman’s Bakehouse we bake bagels as they were a long time ago - crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, with big flavor, and a hole you can stick your finger through. Let us teach you to make a great bagel in your own home. You’ll mix your dough from scratch, knead it by hand, shape it into rings, then boil and bake your bagels to get just the right texture. You’ll choose your seeds too. We’ll also show you traditional bialys, a crispy, chewy roll with a center of slow-roasted onions and poppy seeds. This class will give you a great go-to recipe. Who wouldn’t be impressed waking up to fresh-baked bagels? After all, better bagels could make for better weekends!

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 am, 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.

What our guests have to say about this class:

I came in never having tried making bread and I feel I'm leaving with the knowledge to try and create some on my own. —Nate R.

Everyone should know how to make baguettes like this. I've been trying to make good baguettes for awhile. This has opened my mind. —John D.

Taking your baking classes has given me the confidence to bake more frequently, trying new recipes to prepare for friends and family. —Lisa S.

Fruit tarts are a favorite of food photographers because they look soooo sweet and fresh and just say “summertime.” When you see too many of them on the covers of glossy magazines, you start to get the idea that they’re for experts only. Don’t believe it. We’ll show you how to make the sweet and tender pâte sucrée tart shells and rich vanilla pastry cream. Then we’ll compose our tarts together, teaching you how to arrange the fruit in an artful way. Next time you see a succulent tart gracing the cover of Fine Cooking, you won’t be fooled.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one large fruit tart you made in class and great coupons.

Such a fun baking class. Instructors not only teach us, but give each one of us the time and attention to learn and practice. They all are very professional!!! —Jinny S.

Being able to practice new techniques in a class where I can get help & feedback gives me the confidence to try them at home. —Jane B.

Was so much fun! I have already told my mum we are coming back next year. —Bex S.
