Shape Kaiser rolls with Meister Backer

May 24, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Baked Goods or how we say it in Austria “Weckerl” plays a big part for everyone’s daily routine, especially Austria!
I grew up in a small Village (population of 1600). Every morning the Baker came with his small delivery car and honked the horn to tell the town that there is Fresh baked Bread to purchase.
My Grandma got fresh baked Salt Sticks, Kaiser Rolls and Poppy Seed Buns almost everyday for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. I still remember the aroma that went through the house.
Thanks to all the Bakers who still do that for our little Towns around the world. Every Child should experience freshly baked Bread and that Bakers are a big Part of our life and enjoy all that varieties they have to offer.

This 4 hour class with certified Austrian Meisterbacker Rene’ Felbermayr will be an intensive class in learning the technique of shaping authentic Vienna Kaiser rolls.
In Austria, Bakers say it takes 1000 Kaiser rolls to achieve 1 Kaiser rolls customers would buy. Wheat and Rye will be the grains we work with.

You will learn:

    • ● Mise en place for the Dough
      ● How to mix the Wheat dough
      ● Divide and Preshape
      ● Final shape
      ● Proof and bake
