Book Cover Classic German Baking © Cover illustration by Anna Ropalo Blogger and Food writer Luisa Weiss will be talking about her new book Classic German Baking and presenting some of her most delicious recipes.

Classic German Baking is a delectable collection of 100 quintessential German recipes for sweets and breads from the creator of The Wednesday Chef blog and author of the memoir, My Berlin Kitchen. It includes stories from the author's experience of living and baking in Berlin. Luisa has collected and mastered the recipes most essential to every good baker's repertoire.
In addition to the pillars of the German baking tradition, like Christmas stollen, lebkuchen, and apple strudel, Weiss includes overlooked gems, like eisenbahner — an almond macaroon paste piped onto jam-topped shortbread - and rosinenbrötchen — the raisin-studded whole wheat buns that please a child's palate and a parent's conscience — to create the resource that bakers across the world have long wanted.

Luisa Weiss is a Berlin-born, American-Italian food writer who grew up eating warm Streuselschnecken on her way to school and believes dark winter days are best enjoyed whilst sharing Lebkuchen and Zimtsterne with family and friends.  She lives in Berlin with her husband and son.

Luisa's presentation will include sharing secrets from her kitchen as well as a hands-on demonstration of the way she bakes.
Books will be for sale.
