German Breads

dinkelbrot bread by Antonis Achilleos

this class is being offered virtually.

While working with Eli and Tino of Dresdner Backhaus, a famous bakery in Dresden, Germany, we exchanged recipes and experience freely. Join us for this two-day class where we'll make three of the breads our German friends taught us: the Bakehouse's Dinkelbrot, a spelt, rye, and sunflower seed loaf; Wurzelbrot, a rye and wheat baguette; and Vinschgauer, a savory, seasoned mountain roll that's delicious with ham and cheese.

On Day One, we'll meet for 1.5 hours to mix our rye sour, make our soakers, and mix our poolish before letting them sit overnight. We'll also answer any questions you may have. On Day Two, we'll be mixing, shaping, proofing, and baking our German Breads. 

* Please note, to make the Wurzelbrot, you'll need a stand mixer with a hook attachment. 


What our guests have to say about this class:

Very thorough presentation. One of the best BAKE! classes I've taken. Taking home rye starter is a big plus! —Helen P.
