This is a VERY interactive class with YOU being able to bake, learn, and make the most of it. It is a relaxed, super fun yet educational class packed with plenty of tips on how to work with yeast-based doughs. During the class, I will be sharing about our rich culinary heritage & food customs

  1. We'll start by explaining a bit about the ingredients with a focus on yeasts
  2. We'll move on with preparing the dough, give it some time to rest and in the meantime, we'll prepare fillings
  3. Lastly, we'll proceed with filling, shaping and baking

PLUS: After the class, I'll send you THREE more traditional recipes that you can make with the very same dough. Yum :)

Ahoj! My name is Lenka and I am a passionate baker & baking instructor from Slovakia. My main focus in baking is where my roots are - in Slovak, Eastern European & Russian cuisine. I am proud that my traditional bakes were featured in NY Times magazine and the class on Kolaches & Babka was rated one of the best online baking classes in the U.S. according to PureWow. I write and share about our rich culinary heritage on my blog and Instagram @bakewithlenka My love for baking goes back to the days when I was a small girl helping my grandma to knead the dough sitting on her knees. Since then I've had a chance to bake for hundreds of customers and to share my knowledge via baking classes with countless companies
