What’s it all about?

If you love those soft, yummy baked pretzels with a pint of beer, come along.

Learn all about how to twist and knead your way to deliciously simple handmade pretzels – from savoury to sweet and everything in between.  Bring your enthusiasm, prepare to get your hands dirty, and come get yourself twisted into this delightfully easy baking experience that will bring a little Oktoberfest fun to any kitchen.

What will we cover?

We will learn a bit about the history of pretzels, the types of pretzel, and where those delectable creations originate. We’ll find ourselves learning the basics of pretzel creation and the more advanced techniques. This pretzel recipe is simple but can be spiced up (or sweetened) to suit your particular tastes and palate. There will be plenty of time for questions and everyone will go home with their own ready to bake pretzels.

As a bonus, we’ll learn how to use this dough to make different types of baked goods.

Who will be teaching?

Shari is an avid and haphazard baker which means every baking experience is a new adventure! She delights in baking, sharing a laugh and a spoonful of sugar with her baking comrades. Her skills and knowledge are hard-earned by numerous failed attempts in baking including burning, undercooking, poor measuring techniques, hand-mixers gone wild and simply forgetting to add the sugar. Well, we’ve all been there at some point and she is pleased to share this nearly fail-proof recipe and technique with folks young and old.
