Did you know you can travel from Puglia to Genoa to Sicily without leaving Ann Arbor? In Mambo Italiano, we’ll take you on a bread-baking tour across Italy and you’ll return home with loads of Paesano, Rustic Italian, focaccia with Parmigiano-Reggiano®, and Sesame Semolina breads and the skills to make them any time you want to satisfy the craving for an Italian holiday. This is a full day of Italian baking from finding out what a poolish is to brushing olive oil on your focaccia dough with a nice Bakehouse lunch in between. You'll get plenty of hands-on practice at working with yeasted doughs, including kneading, shaping and proofing too. While our loaves are rising we'll sneak into the Bakehouse to see it done on a much larger scale.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, two loaves of Paesano, two rounds of focaccia, two loaves of Rustic Italian, two loaves of Sesame Semolina, a poolish to make more bread at home and great coupons. Not to mention a full tummy from a great Bakehouse lunch and bread sampling throughout the day.

Hop on the tahini train! We’ve been experimenting in the kitchen with the latest culinary craze, tahini (rich sesame paste). And we’re using a particularly great organic tahini we sourced from Turkey. In this class you’ll bake tahini butter cookies, tahini banana bread made with Michigan wheat flour and black sesame seeds, and tahini and almond filled croissants with a carob drizzle. (Due to time constraints, we will provide you with already baked croissants to fill.) They'll add excitement and flavor to your baker's recipe box.
