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!

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, two dozen bagels/bialys you made in class and great coupons.

We created this class years ago to celebrate Zingerman's Delicatessen's anniversary (they opened way back in 1982!). Learn to make our Jewish rye bread and black magic brownies, old-time favorites; and hummingbird cake, a new favorite with pineapple, pecan, coconut, banana, and cream cheese frosting. Find out what a rye sour is and the secrets behind our rye bread's flavor. We’ll serve our deli meats and sandwich fixinsto go with your bread and end the class with iconic Zingerman’s treats: a sandwich, pickle, brownie, and a toast to many years of great customers.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, a satisfied tummy, great coupons, and everything you made in class: a loaf of rye bread, rye sour, hummingbird cake, and black magic brownies.

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.
