BAKE!-cation Weekend: Bread

Our BAKE!-cations® are the ultimate experience for the home baker! We guide you through a comprehensive education in baking techniques in a fun, exciting, relaxed, and always hands-on classroom full of good humor and expert instruction. Your BAKE!-cation® includes breakfast and lunch every day including lunch from Zingerman's Deli on day two. You'll need an empty suitcase to bring home all the great food you've made!

This hands-on, in-person BAKE!-cation® will be an intensive weekend of baking and demonstrations of some of our favorite breads: Better than San Francisco Sourdough, Farm, 8-Grain, PaesanoRoadhouse Bread, Detroit Style Pizza, Biscuits, Cornbread, Lángos, Grissini, and Bialys.

You’ll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, a full stomach, and all the amazing bread you made in class. You'll also go home with some great coupons.
