Costs & Level: $40 per person - all levels


Come "virtually" to the wintry bakehouse this holiday season and join us from the warmth of your home for a bake-along class devoted to the traditions of European holiday baked goods. We will share the recipes with you before the class so you can either bake along or just want the techniques and try them yourself later. We end the class with an introduction to the tradition of Advents-Kaffeetrinken (the German coffee & tea ceremony with baked goods, typically celebrated during the holiday season) and a Q&A where you can ask all about the traditions, the recipes and techniques.

Some things we'll be making or demoing in class:

- Stollen; (classic and variations) 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 Nürnberger Lebkuchen at home.

- Plätzchen: So many recipes, all delicious - we make some of the classics; Zimtsterne, Vanille Kipferl, Stollen bites (and some vegan & naturally gluten-free versions).

- "Adventstafel" of holiday baked goods, coffee, tea and other specialties around the candle-lid table with an introduction of European holiday specialties.

Join us online for a celebration of the rich history and traditions of the holiday season, old-world style.
