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!
