Learn Zingerman's Bakehouse's traditional French baguette recipe in of our best classes for new bakers. Most commercial bread labeled “baguette” bears no resemblance to the traditional French bread that Parisian bakers first developed around 1920. When a law went into effect forbidding them from starting to work before 4 a.m., they began baking the long thin loaves that are synonymous with French baking today. We teach you to make the traditional French baguette recipe—starting with a flavorful poolish, hand rolling your dough, and ending with a very crisp crust surrounding a soft, holey interior.  Imagine serving breakfast to out-of-town guests and bringing out a perfect baguette that they swear must have been airlifted from Paris.

You'll leave BAKE! with our French baguette recipe, the knowledge to recreate it at home, four French baguettes you made in class, dough to bake later and great coupons.

In spite of its name, Boston Cream Pie is in fact a cake. It also happens to be the official dessert of Massachusetts. In this class you’ll make and assemble all the components of our version of this historic dessert: vanilla chiffon cake layers, vanilla bean pastry cream, vanilla Swiss butter cream and rich dark chocolate ganache. Take one bite and you'll know why it has a whole state so devoted to it, as well as Bakehouse customers and staff.

You'll go home with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, a finished 9" Boston Cream Pie, and great coupons.
