1 Day Nordic-Germanic


Course Description

This intermediate level course features five items, involving bread types and baker’s techniques found from Germany to Scandinavia.

The rustic rye bread (typically Germanic, Alpine, and Scandinavian) has very little wheat in the mix. From South Tyrol comes a spiced bread that is savoury. For sweetness we have the cakey Austrian kugelhopf and limpa bread from Sweden that contains syrup in its dough.

You will learn about scalding flour, as practised in northern Europe and Scandinavia, with scalded spelt forming part of our mixed grains bread.
