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 am, 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.

What our guests have to say about this class:

I came in never having tried making bread and I feel I'm leaving with the knowledge to try and create some on my own. —Nate R.

Everyone should know how to make baguettes like this. I've been trying to make good baguettes for awhile. This has opened my mind. —John D.

Taking your baking classes has given me the confidence to bake more frequently, trying new recipes to prepare for friends and family. —Lisa S.
