We became friends with Eli and Tino of Dresdner Backhaus, a famous bakery in Dresden, Germany. When working with them we exchanged recipes and experience freely. Come and learn three breads our German friends taught us: Dinkelbrot, a spelt bread and sunflower loaf; Wurzelbrot, a rye and wheat baguette; and Vinschgauer, a savory seasoned mountain roll delicious with ham and cheese. You might want to have some at home ready for your return from class!

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, two baguettes, two loaves, 6 large rolls, and great coupons.
