Overview

loKal’s very own Mike Simmons owned, and operated a wholesale and retail scratch bakery in the heart of Lancaster County for 20 years. Over that time, Mike developed literally hundreds of signature recipes across all classes of baking – from pies to cakes to cookies to breads, tortes, cheesecakes and more.

As we head into fall and toward the holidays, it’s Mike’s favorite time to create the smells and tastes of the season that take you back to times past. We’ll have a clinic on pie crust – from rolling to fluting, and make a pie for you to take along. We’ll also whip up a few other personal favorites for you to take and to brag about. You might not be a baking expert when you leave, but you will know enough to wow your friends and family. You’ll have the chance to ask any and all of your baking questions, and you’ll depart with a bunch of goodies, a head full of new baking knowledge, and most importantly, a newly created memory of a great experience.

What else you should know

This is approximately a two and a half hour experience. While the total time is fairly predictable, baking, prep, and cooling times may vary slightly. If you don’t see a time , please email me.

    When I visited Lancaster County for the first time I wanted to immerse myself into the area. I choose the Authentic Sit-Down Amish family meal and the baking class. Both were better than I had hoped for. Absolutely incredible experiences. My interactions were all with Mike from loKal, and he was beyond interesting and helpful. A very personable experience.

    Michael is an expert in baking and made the learning experience special, unique and fun! As we were only 2 he tailored the class to what we wanted. As it was my daughter’s birthday, he had even prepared cake for her which was amazing! Memorable experience - we highly recommend!

    Such a knowledgeable friendly guy! Our conversation was not only filled with wonderful baking tips but historical content of the area intermingled with laughter... so much fun!! We left with stories of the surrounding area, 2 of the best Shoofly Pies made with the yummiest dark molasses I’ve ever had, shortbreads and yummy chocolate-roll. Brought those recipes home... highly recommended this experience... it was so much more than just baking!!!

    We had a great time. Learned several new things. He took his time explaining things and answering all of our questions.

    We had an excellent experience baking with Mike. He has a beautiful home, a great kitchen, and was very patient with these two very inexperienced bakers! We left with two pies, a bunch of cookies, and newly acquired baking skills.

    The experience was great! For someone that had very little baking experience and little knowledge. Michael was so amazingly helpful and patient! He really made it look so easy and effortless! My husband and I had a great time learning! The outcome was an awesome one.. we got to take home some delicious cookies and pies!
