Virtual Better Bagels and Bialys

Learn to make bagels from home - Bagels with cream cheese on a Zingerman's Deli quick sheet

At Zingerman’s Bakehouse we bake bagels as they were a long time ago - crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, with big flavor, and a hole you can stick your finger through. Let us teach you to make a great bagel in your own home, in this online, interactive class via Zoom.

You’ll mix your dough from scratch, knead it by hand, shape it into rings, then boil and bake your bagels to get just the right texture. You’ll choose your seeds too. We’ll also show you traditional bialys, a crispy, chewy roll with a center of slow-roasted onions and poppy seeds. This class will give you a great go-to recipe. Who wouldn’t be impressed waking up to fresh-baked bagels? After all, better bagels could make for better weekends!

We can’t wait to (virtually!) bake with you! With your registration, you will receive the student guide, a grocery and equipment list, and any associated information for the class. You will also receive a link to the Zoom invite. This is your invitation into the class! Consider adding it to your Calendar. 

We encourage you to look through the recipes at this time and the list of ingredients and equipment you will need to have handy in order to plan your trip to the store and have your class run smoothly. 

Day of Class

  • We ask that you have your ingredients out and ready to scale before class. We can all scale together, just make sure to have ingredients accessible. 

  • While not required by BAKE! Law, we highly, highly, highly recommend that you use a scale to ensure the best results and accuracy when baking. 

  • On the day of your class, gather your ingredients, and make yourself comfortable. Expect to see your instructor ready to invite you in 5-10 minutes before class starts. We will do (with some tweaking!) carry on our class as we do our in-person public classes...but this time, you’ll bring your own apron! 

General Thoughts

We understand and expect that we will all work at different speeds, and ask that you be courteous of this in our classes. We have limited our class size to 12 (households, that is, we know there may be more than one of you participating in each home) to ensure that everyone gets the attention and help that they need. 

Since this is a new format for us, we’re learning as we go along! Any feedback or suggestions you have can be sent to [email protected]
