In this masterclass, Lutz Geißler will teach you the first steps of bread baking. Lutz taught himself his skills and built the most successful bread baking blog of Germany with the 'Plötzblog'. He has also written down his knowledge in several books, but for some tricks you need to look more closely at the steps - and that's what this masterclass is for. You will learn the basics of baking bread with little yeast. Lutz shows you how to prepare wheat, milk and spelt bread and turn your kitchen into your own bakery with a few tricks. He always attaches great importance to explaining not only how to bake good bread, but also what happens during the process and why something works. It is probably this holistic approach that allows him to pass on his passion for baking bread to so many.
