Welcome to BAKE! the hands-on teaching bakery at Zingerman's Bakehouse in Ann Arbor, MI. At BAKE! we share our knowledge and love of baking with the home baker community, seeking to preserve baking traditions and inspire new ones.
So what's new at BAKE!? If you've been here before, you'll see some new faces next time you BAKE! with us. Dan Centurione, our new principal and instructor, joins us after owning his own bakery and brings more than 20 years of baking experience and a fondness for teaching people how to make delightful baked treats at home for their family and friends. Lauren Petersen, our other new instructor, stepped over after years leading the bread department at Zingerman's Bakehouse. Lauren has a deep appreciation and broad knowledge of how and why we bake the way we do and loves teaching others "life skills" in baking. We're happy to welcome both Dan to Lauren. They bring a new perspective to BAKE!, but the vision remains the same. Our primary focus is to teach you the recipes we’ve been working on at the bakery for the past 21 years. We will continue to share what we’ve learned in the same informal, fun, and supportive class room atmosphere.
Come & BAKE! with us. Check out our class menu for more than 50 class subjects as well as our class calendar for the hundreds of dates offered. Or if you're looking to learn how to make a favorite item, try searching for it on our classes by food page. We hope to see you in an apron very soon.
