What you'll do?

From the beginning to the end we make Strudel by family recipe. It is 100% hands-on experience. You can learn about stretched Strudel, different fillings, strudel-related habits. Useful tips and practises.

The Strudel is a typical Habsburg-Empire dessert, but it can be originated to the Turkish influence in Hungary. It is an essential part of the wedding dinner in the countryside. I use my mother’s recipe who makes the stretched version. This Strudel pastry is elastic, very thin and it is stretched by the hand. We make sweet and salty versions as well. Where I grew up, there were some typical fillings: poppy-seed with pumpkin, sweet or salty cabbage and sweet cottage cheese cream. Now you can make these on my special baking course. Come and join my hands-on program, learn my family tricks and, at the end of the course, enjoy the result of your efforts.
