Zingerman's Baking and Cooking Classes in Ann Arbor

***UPDATE***

Although we all love to come together for classes, in order to minimize the spread of the virus, all in-person BAKE! classes are canceled until at least July 1st.

Online classes are up and running though! Just look for classes that start with the word "virtual," like Virtual Boston Cream Pie, Virtual Cake Making, and Virtual Amber Waves of Grain.

The easiest and fastest way for you to make changes to your registrations is for you to sign into your account here at bakewithzing.com. As always, if you’d rather give us a ring, we’re happy to assist you with cancelations or class credits over the phone at 734-761-7255.

We look forward to seeing you again in class soon!


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 sometimes cooking classes in our teaching kitchens. 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. You'll leave our baking and cooking classes with that same joy, the food you made in class and the inspiration and skills to bake at home!

Our classes (except for family classes & kids camps) are designed for adults 17 & up.

Kid's Virtual Spring Baking Camp, Session One

10:00 am
To
11:30 am

Calling all kid bakers! Join the BAKE! team as we make some of our favorite recipes in our interactive, online Google Meet three-session class. We’ll whip up pavlovas, sugar crisp and cornmeal muffins, and Patti Pockets (our version of Pop-Tarts). Together, we’ll talk about ingredients, how to properly mix ingredients, and how to roll out doughs! It’ll be dough-licious.  You’ll learn to make a treat for breakfast, an afternoon treat, and a great dessert.

Each class will last for one hour over three days. This class is recommended for kids 8+ However, if you have younger kids that enjoy cooking, an adult helper is welcome to participate with them.

We can’t wait to (virtually!) bake with you! With your registration, you will receive the student guide, a grocery and equipment list, and any associated information for the class. You will also receive a link to the Google Meet invite. This is your invitation into the class! Consider adding it to your Calendar. 

We encourage you to look through the recipes at this time and the list of ingredients and equipment you will need to have handy in order to plan your trip to the store and have your class run smoothly. 

Day of Class

  • We ask that you have your ingredients out and ready to scale before class. We can all scale together, just make sure to have ingredients accessible.

  • While not required by Bake Law, we highly, highly, highly recommend that you use a scale to ensure the best results and accuracy when baking. 

  • On the day of your class, gather your ingredients, and make yourself comfortable. Expect to see your instructor ready to invite you in 5-10 minutes before class starts. We will do (with some tweaking!) carry on our class as we do our in-person public classes...but this time, you’ll bring your own apron! 

General Thoughts

We understand and expect that we will all work at different speeds, and ask that you be courteous of this in our classes. We have limited our class size to 12 to ensure that everyone gets the attention and help that they need. 

Since this is a new format for us, we’re learning as we go along! Any feedback or suggestions you have can be sent to [email protected]

Virtual Scones, 2 Ways

9:00 am

A great class for beginning bakers. In this interactive, online Google Meet class, you will learn the keys to flaky and tender scones, such as how to properly cut the butter into the flour.

You’ll make two varieties of Bakehouse buttery scones—a dozen sweet crystallized ginger and a dozen savory cheddar herb. We’ll also give you other add-in options (chocolate, blueberry) and suggestions for what works best for ingredient substitutes.

Scones are simple to make and really delicious fresh out of your oven at home, so these recipes will surely become some of your favorites to reach for!

Virtual Sweet and Savory Galettes

9:00 am
To
12:30 pm

A galette is a fancy French word for a free-form pie. It sounds and looks impressive, but we’ll show you how to master this rustic but elegant pastry. 

In this online, interactive class via Google Meet, we’ll start with an important building block, mixing, rolling, and shaping a basic butter pie dough. Then we’ll use it to create individual savory galettes filled with herbed goat cheese and sliced tomatoes. Then we’ll bake a gorgeous, large, sweet galette—with almond frangipane and seasonal fruit (apple in March-June, peach in July-Aug).
