Baking Retreats

Bakers, pack your bags! Our trips bring together a global community of bakers through custom curriculums led by some of the most inspiring professionals in the baking world. Whether you’re making sourdough bread in San Francisco, scones in London, or shaping croissants in Paris, our editor-in-chief, Brian Hart Hoffman, will accompany you through each experience, teaming up with master bakers to help you perfect every recipe that comes along. We’ll be your guides to our destinations’ thriving cultural and culinary scenes, taking you on exclusive tours and tastings, arranging meet and greets with renowned baking personalities, and more.

Because of our small group sizes, you’ll be able to connect like never before with professional bakers from around the world in intimate, hands-on learning opportunities. After we’ve said goodbye, you’ll return home richer in memories, friends, and experiences.
