|Mural at Zingerman’s Bake House, Ann Arbor.|
Len took a rye bread baking class there last week.
|The bake house, the classrooms, the creamery,|
the candy shop, and the coffee shop are all together in
a sprawling semi-industrial complex.
|It was a beautiful day, and we had a quick snack before he went into the classroom.|
|The small, dark rye went very well with salad and black bean “meatballs.”|
As it was a German-style bread, I tried for German-style flavor (but meatless).
NOTE: How to make these black bean “meantballs” — Combine and mash the following with a potato masher: 1 beaten egg, 1 can of drained black beans, 10 finely chopped pecans or walnuts (= 2 tablespoons), 1/3 cup Panko breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, ground caraway seeds, and herbs to taste. Form into 8-10 small patties, chill for a while to firm them up, and fry them in oil on medium heat. Serve with yogurt sauce flavored with capers and herbs.
|This week’s class was Len’s second Zingerman’s baking school experience. The first (here) was in 2019.|

The bread looks truly outstanding. Good bread is so hard to find. We used to buy sourdough from a local bakery but I think they must have hired a new baker because the bread is inferior, and we stopped buying it.
This must be a fun time for your husband. The results look yummy! Hugs-Erika
That is a great project!
I get Zingerman's catalog frequently. Jealous you're able to visit there. The black bean meatballs sound delish!!
Rick took baguettes there and has been using their recipe ever since. I took coffee/tea cakes and haven't used the recipes but should really dig them out. The crumb cake was especially good. I'd love to do that again! Every year I say I will sign up for Christmas cookies -- then I forget till its filled!
The homemade bread looks just delicious. The meal with the salad and bread looks yummy. Love the cute mural! Take care, have a great new week!
Lovely excursion (and class)! Thanks for the black bean meatball recipe. I've got a new veg member of the family (mostly) coming for the holidays!
Nice murals, but lovely looking bread. I would LOVE to try the "meantballs" recipe.
voilà une affiche amusante pour un projet très intéressant.
Ohhh what a fun place. We just don't have things like that here. The bread looks just amazing. I make black bean meat too. Have a great day.
Lovely mural and looks cheerful too...
Thanks for sharing,Have a great day!
Did he learn anything new? The dark rye loaf looks so tasty.
That sounds exciting! And thank you for the recipe!
Off to get Ingo´s bread from his "special" bakery soon. Ack.. 2 km one way. In the darn cold.
Nothing like home-baked bread. In the last 2 years I started baking bread at home, but my husband and I were eating a loaf every 2 days!! so I stopped baking, lol.
Cute mural. Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Mae.
Nice salad. Interesting meantball recipe.
