10 Midwest Trips You'll Talk About
The Bakehouse, an extension of Ann Arbor, Michigan's, legendary Zingerman's Deli, runs a teaching program called Bake! It's a flour-filled heaven for foodies. Despite the daunting curriculum -- four days, 12 types of bread and no electric mixers -- this carb-loaded getaway attracts participants from around the country.
At this bake-cation, assistants take care of all the measuring and cleanup. In fact, if a student dares to wipe a table, someone inevitably rushes over, pleading, "Don't! You're on vacation!" And you are. Zingerman's shoppers often cart home loads of goodies, and bake-cation alums do the same. The only difference is they made them themselves.
