This class takes you all the way back to the origin of bread. Flatbreads have been around since humans first picked wheat off the stalk and decided to grind it and heat it. In this class you’ll make whole wheat tortillas, za'atar bread, and einkorn naan; and we’ll demonstrate how to make a proper matzo. Learn everything you need to know to make these versatile, full-flavored breads.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, a dozen flatbreads and great coupons.

Brioche is one of the most satisfyingly rich breads in the world. The scent of butter will fill the room when you learn how to make brioche dough, shape it and bake it to perfection. We’ll show you how versatile this dough is by making a traditional round tête shape, chocolate-filled brioche rolls, a savory brioche roll filled with sausage, and a sweet loaf called Craquelin, the national bread of Belgium! You'll get plenty of hands-on practice in class with mixing, kneading and proofing yeasted doughs. We'll also demonstrate "bee sting" cake. You gotta try it!

Remember when you were little and the gym teacher pulled out a compact plastic bundle and magically unfurled it into a huge parachute that the whole class could fit under? Well, you’ll have that experience all over again when we take a grapefruit-sized piece of strudel dough and stretch it out to cover a 24 sq. ft. table. Then we’ll make sweet and savory fillings to finish it off. This is just about the most fun you can have making food.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, two strudel you made in class, strudel dough to bake at home and great coupons.

You might not think of tea as being a typical pairing for a slice of cheese, but the two can be exceptionally good together. Much like wine, certain teas contain tannins that are released once the tea leaves are exposed to hot water, giving it a full-bodied taste and making it a perfect accompaniment to cheese. Our cheesemongers have selected some of our favorite teas sourced from Rishi Tea and picked some perfect cheeses to pair up that will make you look at tea time in a whole new way!

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. In class, we'll snack on some bagels along with fresh cream cheese from our neighbor Zingerman's Creamery. This class will give you a great go-to recipe. Who wouldn't be impressed waking up to freshly baked bagels? After all, better bagels could make for better weekends!
