What you will learn
Many accomplished cooks feel less than confident when it comes to baking. Using precise measurements and following specific techniques sends many home chefs rushing to the bakery to buy dessert. If you’re one of those fearful bakers, we’ve created a fun and engaging class series designed to turn everyone into fearless bakers.

Based on the definitive and approachable guidebook for beginners in the wonderful world of baking, The Fearless Baker, this 3-part series is designed to help nervous novices shed their fears of the oven. This seminal baking book was written by renowned Bay Area pastry chef Emily Luchetti. A 2004 James Beard award-winner and the current Vice Chair of The James Beard Foundation, Chef Luchetti has over two decades of experience creating what many consider to be among the finest desserts in the world. Luchetti walks first-time bakers through 175 sophisticated but simple-to-follow recipes and troubleshoots common baking problems with colorful illustrations and photographs of real bakers at work. Her friendly tone makes using it almost like having a professional pastry chef at your side, so home cooks can progress to more elaborate recipes and cooking techniques at their own pace.

In this hands-on baking class series, our chef instructors will help students master the basics of measuring, mixing, assembling and baking a variety of baked goods, including cakes, pies, tarts, breads, and dessert classics. You’ll learn how to approach and execute any baking recipe with skill and confidence as you discover how to properly work with basic baking ingredients and tools.

Join us for this special series based on this legendary cookbook to build your confidence and become a truly fearless baker at home. Each student receives a free autographed copy of The Fearless Baker by Emily Luchetti.
