Soft Pretzels

Zingerman's pretzel making class

Learn the secrets to traditional German-style soft pretzels made with lard and dipped in lye. We will teach you how to form the crossed pretzel shape and tell you the story of why a monk decided to have this food be “in prayer.” You'll also shape the stick or baguette we make at the Bakehouse. These simple but tasty rolls are sure to become a family favorite. We'll also answer the “burning” question, “Are these dipped in the same lye used to make soap?” We'll end class tasting some warm pretzels with a little mustard and Zingerman's Creamery pimento cheese.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipe, the knowledge to recreate it at home, a dozen pretzels you made in class, and great coupons.

*This class was formerly known as "Bavarian Baguettes: a.k.a. German Pretzels"
