BAKE! is Zingerman's hands-on teaching bakery in Ann Arbor, MI, tucked between Zingerman's Bakehouse and Zingerman's Creamery.
We offer dozens of different bread, pastry, and cake hands-on baking classes and cooking classes both in our teaching kitchens and online for virtual classes. We also offer the ability to customize your experience with private classes, both in-person or virtual.
All of us at Zingerman's Bakehouse know the joy and excitement of baking something really good and sharing it with friends when it's hot out of the oven. Our baking and cooking classes will leave you with that same joy, the food you made, and the inspiration and skills to continue your baking journey.
Our in-person classes (except for family classes & kids camps) are designed for adults aged 17 and up. Virtual classes (except for virtual kids classes) are designed for adults as well, however, households are welcome to participate together, so kids can join in the fun, too.
We want to encourage a love of cooking and baking early, so we also offer a variety of classes designed for kids that include multi-day camps for kids and teens, and more. Head to the kids’ classes and private classes pages for more information.
