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.

These are royally good cookies, and maybe our most popular Jewish baked good at Zingerman’s Bakehouse. To make our rugelach we start with a rich cream cheese and butter pastry,fold it up withspecial fillings, sprinkle it with sugar and bake it to a golden brown. They’re not too sweet, full of flavor and really great any time of day. In this class, we’ll make three rugelach flavors—dark chocolate, almond sesame, and date—and practice two different ways to shape them (as seen in our cookbook, Zingerman's Bakehouse, available now).

You'll leave bake with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, all therugelach you made in class and great coupons.
