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 a.m., 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.

From the nutty flavor of sesame semolina to the olive oil infused decadence of focaccia, soon you too will be saying Viva Italia!

For most people, the phrase “American bread” conjures some unfortunate stereotypes: most are bland, wheat bread is dry, and cornbread is just for sopping up chili. In this class, you’ll taste just how good American breads can be. You’ll learn how we make our tasty Boston Brown bread and tender biscuits; discover a 100% whole wheat bread so sweet, Bakehouse founder Frank Carollo named it after his daughter Margaret; and bake our tasty, slightly sweet Northern style cornbread. Get plenty of hands-on practice at mixing, kneading and shaping your loaves too. Once you’ve taken this class, you’ll never have to settle for stereotypes again!

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, 3 loaves of bread and 12 biscuits you made in class and great coupons.
