German Pretzel 'Master's Edition' - for Foodies & Serious Pretzel Geeks - Livestream
Livestream Berkeley, CA
You will learn how to make authentic German pretzels in this fun, hands-on livestreamed class! In the ‘Masters Edition’ class, we dive deeper than we do in the other class and focus on the science behind the pretzels and you'll learn how to make pretzels using lye (as well as baking soda) and we go over more forming techniques and how to make 'special variety' pretzels. Also, you will learn about the history and culture behind German Pretzels. You can even follow-along from home and make some in real-time. Class is 1 1/2 hours and you will learn how to make delicious German Soft Pretzels! From making the dough to forming various pretzel shapes, to dipping in an alkaline solution to baking and eating! (Chef Squaby also offers a different pretzel class where only the baking soda method is taught and runs 1 hour and costs $19.) Once you sign-up I will send you the ingredient and equipment list (both minimal) so you can get prepared and jump right in and start your dough when I do! I prefer teaching these classes in person but find that online is fun and beneficial too! This will be live-streamed on Zoom.

What differentiates the German pretzel from most purchased in the US is the addition of milk & butter in ingredients.
