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, 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 and 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 foccacia, 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.

We have so much to teach you about how to bake a great cake! In this class you'll learn three cakes, each requiring a different mixing technique: rich yellow Buttermilk Cake (which we'll use to make Pineapple Upside Down Cake), fluffy white Angel Food Cake, and dark intense flourless Chocolate Truffle Cake. We'll talk about choosing great ingredients and helpful tips for baking, plus you'll get hands-on practice mixing your cake batters. These cakes will outshine the box mix versions any day. Add them to your baking bag of tricks!

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one 9" pineapple upside down cake, one 9" chocolate truffle cake, one 6" angel food cake and great coupons.

Learn the secrets to traditional German-style soft pretzels made with lard and dipped in lye. We will teach you how to form the crossed pretzel shape and tell you the story of why a monk decided to have this food be “in prayer.” You'll also shape the stick or baguette we make at the Bakehouse. These simple but tasty rolls are sure to become a family favorite. We'll also answer the “burning” question, “Are these dipped in the same lye used to make soap?” We'll end class tasting some warm pretzels with a little mustard and Zingerman's Creamery pimento cheese.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipe, the knowledge to recreate it at home, a dozen pretzels you made in class and great coupons.

*This class was formerly known as "Bavarian Baguettes: a.k.a. German Pretzels"
