It's Oktoberfest--the perfect time to make your own (shape your own!) PRETZELS! Dipped and baked, warm out of the oven, pretzels are absolutely the best. Terry Kelzer will demonstrate how to make these delicious homemade snacks—how to make and shape the dough and how to dip the pretzels in a simmering water bath before baking to a beautiful shiny brown. Don't forget the MUSTARD and Obatzda! Terry will also demonstrate a homemade mustard and Obatzda (a Bavarian cheese delicacy served at Oktoberfest) that perfectly complement the pretzels. Yes, you’ll get to taste it all, served up with some sausage bites and a tasting of local beer for the full Oktoberfest experience!

Terry Kelzer, local culinary and cultural expert, brings more than 50 years of cooking and baking experience, as well as a delightful sense of humor, to all her classes. After 12 years working in restaurants and bakeries in the Twin Cities, she and her husband and young family moved to a small farm near Amery where they raised dairy goats, chickens, fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Terry says that is when her education in the basics of real food began, along with a deep appreciation for her ancestors as she had to learn to prepare, process, and preserve everything produced on the farm on an old wood cookstove. During this time, she also cooked and baked 'from scratch' for Head Start for 26 years. Terry’s great joy is sharing with others all the things she has learned along the way. Join us and experience both her knowledge and her joy.
