Detroit Classics

Virtual Detroit Style Pizza class photo by Antonis Achilleos

Experience three classics from Detroit institutions that have been around since the 1920s and 1940s. Together in this hands-on class, we'll make Detroit-Style Deep Dish Pizza, with caramelized cheese edges baked in a blue steel pan; Spiced Almond Cookies, in the traditional windmill shape; and a Long John Coffee Cake, with a butter, brown sugar, and walnut streusel. Get a little piece of history and a big bite of flavor, along with plenty of hands-on practice and tips for mastering these classic recipes. 

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and the pizza, cookies, and coffee cake you made in class.

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