Ready to impress with your Lebkuchen, Weihnachtsplätzchen and Stollen baking skills? On Wednesday 29 November from 6.30 to 7.30pm on Zoom we are joined by Jürgen Krauss for a talk on German baking.
Jürgen was the star of Bake Off 2021, his semi-finals departure triggering over 100 complaints from dismayed viewers. His love for baking began during his childhood in the Black Forest. His travels across Europe, before settling in Brighton, UK, widened his culinary influences, but also gave him the yearning to master German bread-making, the perfect showcase for both his technical precision and creative flavours.
In August, Jürgen’s cook book German Baking – Cakes, tarts, traybakes and breads from the Black Forest and beyond came out. According to the publisher this fool-proof collection of recipes is a must-have for his many fans and provides delicious inspiration for any time of day and any occasion. In this online discussion, he will take us through some of the recipes and discuss his love for all things baked.
Jürgen will be in discussion with Luisa Weiss. She is the author of Classic German Baking (2016) and the upcoming Classic German Cooking (10/24). Her memoir My Berlin Kitchen was published in 2012. She is the author of the Letter from Berlin newsletter on Substack. Luisa lives in Berlin with her husband and two sons.
