Go back to where it all started. Reminisce with the authors Frank and Amy, taste Deli sandwiches featuring the best of Bakehouse breads, snack on Magic Brownies and go home with a signed book!

This is the must-have baking book for bakers of all skill levels. Since 1992, Michigan’s renowned artisanal bakery, Zingerman’s Bakehouse in Ann Arbor, has fed a fan base across the United States and beyond with their chewy brownies and ginger jump ups, famous sour cream coffee cake, and fragrant loaves of Jewish rye, challah, and sourdough. It’s no wonder Zingerman’s is a cultural and culinary institution. Now, for the first time, to celebrate their 25th anniversary, the Zingerman’s bakers share 65 meticulously tested, carefully detailed recipes in a beautiful hardcover book featuring more than 50 color photographs and bountiful illustrations. Behind-the-scenes stories of the business enrich this collection of best-of-kind, delicious recipes for every “I can’t believe I get to make this at home!” treat.
