Join us to learn two of our Hungarian favorites that are so good they grace the pages of our cookbook, Zingerman's Bakehouse: Rigo Jancsi, a traditional Hungarian coffeehouse torte named after Rigó Jancsi (1858-1927) pronounced [ree-GO yan-CHEE], a famous Hungarian violinist who seduced and married Clara Ward, Princesse de Caraman-Chimay. It's two light layers of chocolate sponge cake filled with chocolate rum whipped cream and iced with apricot glaze and dark chocolate ganache. You will also make our Somodi Kálacs, a cinnamon swirl bread (pictured on the right). This class covers a variety of techniques—from glazing and marking your torte to folding and rolling the cinnamon swirl inside your yeasted dough.
You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them and pronounce them at home, one 1/4-sheet cake, one loaf of bread, dough to bake later, and great coupons.
**You may want to bring a cooler to put your take-home dough in if you are traveling more than an hour to attend class.
