Make this popular street food from start to finish from Shih-Wen Wu, an instructor for the Confucius Institute at the University of Michigan. Chinese Steamed Buns also known as Baozi or simply known as Bao, are a very popular food in Chinese cuisine. Along city streets, you can often find street vendors selling all kinds of Baozi. Buns can come in a variety of shapes and sizes with various fillings. Savory buns come filled with meat, fish, or vegetables, some seasoned with BBQ or hot spices. Sweet buns are filled with red bean paste; lotus seed paste, custard, black sesame, chocolate, or come as just plain steamed dough (Man-tou). Buns are usually steamed, but can also come pan-fried. You will learn how to knead and make different shapes of bao and we will finish with steam and pan-fried savory (pork with vegetable) bao and steamed sweet (Adzuki red bean) buns. This hands-on class will open the door to experience a new world of Chinese cooking.

You’ll leave BAKE! With recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, the buns you made in class and great coupons.

Chic events can also be environmentally sustainable and you can experience it firsthand at our upcoming seasonal dinner!

This fall, our dinner series gets a sustainable upgrade from food and beverages to décor and florals, thanks to an eco-conscious dream team. Chef Kieron Hales is excited to collaborate with Author Lindsay-Jean Hard on a sustainable, locally-sourced menu inspired by her soon-to-be-released cookbook, Cooking with Scraps, which shows just how delicious and surprising the all-too-often discarded scraps can be in a collection of 85 inspired recipes. We're also extending the sustainable theme into our décor with Detroit Cultivated, founded by planner Haley Lertola who is committed to disrupting Detroit's event industry by creating inspired experiences that incorporate sustainable practices. As an added bonus, each guest will receive a signed copy of Cooking with Scraps with their ticket purchase.

The fall dinner will take place in our historic farmhouse, rain or shine, and is limited in capacity so please purchase tickets in advance.

It's never too soon to start honing your expert palate, so we're super excited to announce that we're bringing our popular JUST FOR KIDS tasting events to an even younger audience! We'll be reading Stone Soup by Marcia Brown and then tasting matzo ball soup, potato knish and farm bread. The best part for us is that we'll be teaching your kids to taste the food like an expert - using the 5 steps to tasting great food.

We think kids ages 2-5 would most enjoy this event. Parents attend free. The story and tasting will last about 30 minutes and then participants are welcome to stay in the reserved room for lunch. We will have an order taker on hand, so no need to shlep the tots all around the Deli. All participants will receive a 20% off coupon to use after the tasting for lunch and/or shopping at the Deli. Please include your child's name, age, and any allergy information in the comments field when you register. Thank you!
