As apple season hits its stride, come learn the magic of apfelstrudel. You'll find that coaxing properly made dough into a paper-thin sheet is surprisingly easy. You'll master working with this strong, silken dough and then practice rolling layers around a filling of fresh apples, raisins and nuts.
While your strudel bakes, we'll conduct an apple tasting to learn which varieties are best for cider, sauce, pie or simply enjoying out of hand.
Strudel is a communal experience that you'll want to prepare with friends and family during the holidays. With the dough you take home, you'll be able to explore both sweet and savory versions. We'll discuss different filling and rolling techniques along with substitutions for butter and eggs.
