This class is all about the rich holiday baking traditions of Germany, Austria and the surrounding areas and includes hands-on teachings of traditional techniques and recipes. We end the class with a tasting called Advents-Kaffeetrinken (the traditional German coffee & tea ceremony with holiday baked goods).
Some things we'll be making in class:
- Stollen; (classic and variations, incl. Dresdner Christstollen, Rumstollen ) including proper technique of mixing, shaping and baking
- Lebkuchen: Learn all about the history of the century-old rye cake and how to make authentic Nueremberg Lebkuchen at home
- Plätzchen (cookies): Zimtsterne, Vanille Kipferl, Stollen bites (and some vegan and gluten free versions)
- How to prepare a traditional "Adventskaffee", the celebration of coffee, tea and holiday specialties around the candle lid table
