Livestream: German Holiday Baking with Brot Bakehouse

Tuesday, December 14, 2021
12:30pm - 2:00pm

Virtual programming

Join us for a traditional German Advent baking class, featuring a presentation about the history and traditions around holiday baking, and a demonstration of making some of the best-know holiday specialties in central Europe. We will feature some of the most beloved items you find on every “Adventsteller” in Europe (a traditional plate of baked goods, found in virtually every home during this time): Stollen, Lebkuchen, Zimtsterne (cinnamon stars) and Vanillekipferl (vanilla crescents). The class will start with a presentation about European holiday baking traditions and how each of the baked goods we’ll make in class is firmly rooted in those traditions. Heike will then demo some of the basic steps of making those specialties; sharing important tips and tricks when baking them at home. With recipes right from the bakery you can start making those specialties yourself in your home kitchen - just in time for the holidays.

This class will be held on Zoom, and more information on joining the class will be sent to participants in advance.
