Saturday, June 22, 2013 |The Portland Culinary Alliance is delighted to have Andrea Slonecker, culinary instructor and author of Pretzel Making at Home, teach a cooking class on artisan pretzel making, with hands-on shaping as part of the class, and lunch to follow.
Have you ever tasted a genuine soft pretzel? We’re not talking about those spongy, tasteless versions from the concession stand. We’re talking about a real soft pretzel, with deep, dark, burnished skin and a yeasty, chewy middle. If so, then you know that authentic German pretzels are much more than twisted bread.
