Amber Waves of Grain: American Breads

Zingerman's Bread Baking Class Online

For most people, the phrase “American bread” conjures up some unfortunate stereotypes: most are bland, wheat bread is dry, and biscuits are just not flaky. In this hands-on class, you’ll taste just how good American breads can be. You’ll learn to make flavorful Michigan Wheat bread, Northern Cornbread, and our classic Bakehouse White. Get plenty of hands-on practice at mixing, kneading, and shaping too. Once you’ve taken this class, you’ll never have to settle for stereotypes again!

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and everything you made in class: two loaves of Michigan Wheat, a pan of Northern Cornbread, and  two loaves of Bakehouse White. 

In-Person: We'll end class with a tasting of what we made and you'll go home with some great coupons.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale

$70.00

A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. The price includes ground shipping.
