A hands-on in-person cooking class. Alongside the tasting of baked goods, a seasonal salad will be served with wine or beer. This class is limited to 12 students. Review our registration and cancellation policies here.


In this class, we’ll celebrate brioche’s sweet and savory versatility. Rich in butter and eggs, brioche is an elegant yeasted dough, a cross between bread and a cake. We'll twist together brioche with chocolate to make a rich, decadent Babka laced with ribbons of bittersweet chocolate. The German classic Bienenstich, or Bee Sting Cake, is a round yeasted cake with salted almond caramel topping, filled with rich vanilla pastry cream. Next we'll make a spectacular Brie en Brioche, a savory pastry of brie and onion marmalade encased in brioche. Lastly, we’ll make ultra-soft brioche buns for our homemade veggie burgers. Bring your appetites!
