What you'll do

Let's have fun & travel to Slovakia!
(at least with our taste buds and the best traditional pastry :)

During this online baking class, I'll teach you step-by-step how to make the most delicious traditional buns in Slovak called Koláče and a sweet braided bread called Babka from scratch

I want this class to be as interactive as possible with YOU being able to bake, learn, and make the most of it. It is a relaxed, fun but educational class packed with plenty of tips on how to work properly with yeast-based doughs

WHAT WE'LL DO:
--> We'll start by explaining a bit about the ingredients with a focus on yeasts as there are certain rules to be followed anytime you're using them in baking
--> We'll move on with preparing the dough, give it some time to rest and in the meantime, we'll work on fillings
--> Lastly, we'll proceed with filling, shaping, baking, and of course, tasting :)

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

This experience is GREAT FOR GROUPS and TEAM-BUILDINGS as well. Reconnect with your team, have fun and enjoy delicious pastries afterward​ - by today I had a chance to teach teams from companies like Grammarly, Google, Airbnb & many more

PS: If the date & time doesn't suit your schedule, shoot me a message and we make​ it work

Hello, fellow bread lovers :)

My name is Lenka and I am a passionate baker & baking instructor from Slovakia with the main focus on Slovak, Eastern European & Russian pastries

My love for baking goes back to the days when I was as a small girl helping my grandma with kneading the dough on her knees. There was never a weekend we would not bake cakes and pastries, all from ingredients growing in our backyard

I share my baking passion & traditional recipes on my blog www.wandering-senses.com & my baking tips&trick on @wandering_senses and now I decided to share my passion & knowledge with those curious to learn how to make the most delicious traditional Slovak and Eastern European pastries here on Airbnb

We had this as a team bonding activity at Work and it was amazing. We fully enjoyed the experience of learning, baking and social bonding aspect with the team and with Lenka as well. I highly recommend. Lenka was a thoughtful , passionate and fun host. She made sure everyone was following through the process end to end, coaching each one’s progress and making the time fun and engaging. One thing I would note , while this could be largely depending on the size of group and level of experience is, 1.5 hours felt a little tight to see the full results and taste both babka and kolaches (soon we started sharing photos of babka after the experience and it was amazing tho). Again, this would depend on the group but we felt we’d liked a bit more time to chat with Lenka (cuz she is amazing) and eat the bread together!

I've taken many virtual classes and this class definitely ranks amongst the best. Lenka kept a great pace and was very thorough in her instruction. The babka and kolaches turned out delicious.

Lenka is a very attentive and very engaging teacher. My daughter loved her experience and was very proud to present her beautiful babka and kolachikis for dessert for the family.

Lenka's baking experience was fantastic as always. We have booked this many times before for our "team building" activity. Great value and fun. Thank you Lenka.
