What you'll do
Are you ready to bake some Dutch stories?? I'll teach you how to make some typical Dutch sweets! The Bakery 'Let's Bake a Story' is situated in the city centre of Delft, very close to the train station. We will start the workshop with a small introduction, coffee/tea and of course a warm, typical Dutch apple pie! After we've introduced ourselves to each other and I've told you a little bit about Delft, we will start baking! We will be baking three different types of Dutch delicacies (about 30 pieces in total). Everyone will make enough so you can already eat some sweets during the workshop, but you will still have some left to take home. I'll explain/ show how the sweets are made and then you can try for yourself. Everyone will get a recipe book, so you can bake the Dutch treats at home too. The workshop will take about 2,5 to 3 hours. The maximum amount of people is 10, because I like to work in small groups. There will be bags/ packaging for you so you can bring everything you made home with you. All drinks are included. The most important thing is that you have a typical Dutch experience, a lot of fun and a lot of stories to tell when you come home!

I'm the founder of Let's Bake a Story, which is situated in Delft, The Netherlands. The love for baking started when I was only 6 years old and we would bake cakes at home with my family for birthdays. Little did I know that I would become a pastry chef when I grew up! I've worked at many different places before starting my own business. I've worked at different bakeries, a Michelin star restaurant and I've gained experience in a bakery and restaurant in Melbourne, Australia. I love to travel and experience new places, food and people. I guess that's what a lot of people are searching for while traveling. I would love to tell people more about the Dutch culture and teach how to make Dutch delicacies. In this way I get in touch with so many people from all over the world while being in my own country. I can't wait to meet you!
