About the Event
Suitable for children 6 years and older (kids under 8 years old must be accompanied by an adult).
This is a floury hands on kitchen session with Franka Haeussner, who has many years experience in baking delicious treats, including the doughy European favourite: the pretzel! We have offered this workshop a few times in the past, and it has always been a great success with young people and adults alike. But then...Who doesn't like pretzels!
The process of making them is tactile, interesting and fun. It can also be a bit messy, so best be prepared for a few flour, water and butter marks.
Basically, soft pretzels are just a yeast bread that is formed into a pretzel shape. The one big difference in pretzel making, as opposed to a regular bread making, is that pretzels are boiled and then baked. It is the boiling that gives the outside of the pretzel its beautiful golden brown color and uniquely crisp and chewy texture. The great thing is: once you have the dough, you can make any shape you like! In this workshop, children regularly come up with the most creative forms; flowers, animals, letters - once we had a dragon!
Each child will make a yummy big pretzel each - and eat it of course!
Please note: we will be working with standard white flower and Butter in this workshop, so it is not suitable for anyone with a gluten and/or dairy intolerance. We will also be working with boiling hot water, which is why children under 8 need the close attention of an accompanying adult.
This workshop is limited to 12 children, so get in early.
