Every baker should know how to make a pie crust. You never stood on a chair to help Grandma bake a pie? You don’t get many second chances in life but here’s your opportunity to learn how she did it.

In this class we’ll deliver the techniques of how to make a pie crust the Zingerman's way- creating a flaky crust with butter, and another crust using lard and butter (no shortening allowed!).  We'll teach you how to make the dough by hand, successfully roll it out, show you what par-baking a crust is, and how to crimp the edges to make your pies look beautiful. You'll make a double crust fruit pie and a single crust baked custard pie. Pie flavors for this class vary by season (May-Sept: blueberry and lemon chess/ Oct-Apr: apple and pecan). Roll up your sleeves and join in the fun so you can tell all your friends you learned how to make a pie crust.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to make pie crust at home, two 10" pies, one butter pie crust to bake later and great coupons.

If you’ve already got the perfect flaky crust and tasty fillings down pat, join us for these dazzling pie decorating techniques! In this hands-on class we’ll show you a few fancy embellishments for your pies: the classic lattice to make a double crusted cooked fruit filling pie, using small cookie cutters to cut out shapes, how to create a braided edge, and a few other simple, yet beautiful designs to decorate the edge of a single crust pie (which will be ready for your use at home). You’ll get lots of hands-on experience making, rolling, and decorating your pies!

You'll leave BAKE! with the knowledge to decorate pies at home, two pies you made in class, and great coupons.

Ah, the pizza pie! It's a cornerstone of the American diet, and yet so few folks actually make pizza at home! We're here to show you how easy and fun it can be to make New York-style and Chicago-style pizza recipes. We'll fire up our wood-fired oven to BAKE! them and give you plenty of pizza samples in class. We will also demonstrate Pizza Bianca, a flavorful Italian bread that is a great accompaniment to any dinner. The next time you reach for the phone to order pizza delivery, you'll remember it's fun and a lot more flavorful to make it yourself.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one New York-style pizza, one Chicago-style pizza, two New York-style pizza doughs, one Chicago-style pizza dough and great coupons. Not to mention a full tummy from plenty of pizza snacking in class!
