Sassy Soups

cheddar ale virtual cooking class

In this hands-on class, we'll make two of our best-selling Zingerman’s Bakehouse soups! 

Molinaro’s Mushroom Barley
The dried porcinis, three different fresh mushrooms, and two broths (vegetable and parmesan mushroom) make for a richly flavored and supremely nourishing soup. Something about this dish says soft, cozy, and relaxing, like a Sunday evening spent inside on a cold winter night. It’s named after Sara Molinaro, the fearless leader of our baking school and we wanted to honor her contributions to our work by naming something we make after her. Alliteration and Sara’s Italian heritage made this soup a perfect choice.

5 O'Clock Cheddar Ale
This soup has been a Thursday standard in our Bakeshop for at least a decade. It’s been so long that none of us can remember exactly when we started to make it! Summer or winter, it seems to satisfy.

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to create them at home, the two soups you made in class, and some great coupons.
