|Zingerman's Bakehouse offers over 70 classes on how to bake almost everything.|
They host the classes in very beautiful classrooms in this building, near the outdoor
seating area where you can drink coffee and eat pastry from the retail bakery.
|In the classroom Len and other students were preparing for the rye bread class, which lasted 4 hours.|
|A wonderfully well-equipped space for learning to bake!|
|Nikki, the instructor.|
|Lots of bread and other good things for sale in the bakery, which is |
definitely one of the most famous places in Ann Arbor!
|At the end of class, participants take home their bakes: two loaves of onion rye, two loaves of pumpernickel, and|
a flatbread called Vorterkaker, which is a Norwegian 100% rye.
|For our dinner: open-faced sandwiches on the three breads.|
|Vorterkaker with cream cheese and cilantro sprigs. Pumpernickel with butter, tomato, and smoked salmon.|
Onion rye with butter and hard-boiled egg slices. What great breads!
Although he's tried quite a few bread recipes and has been making bread frequently, Len found this class enjoyable and a good learning experience. Classes at Zingerman's are very popular and sell out quickly. Some of Len's fellow students had taken classes there before: one had taken over 20 classes! For more information see the class description of "Rockin' Rye Bread" on Zingerman's website.
