Off we went to teach a sold out class how to make Paska. .Zwieback and Green Bean Soup.
My confidence had grown since the last class and so the anticipation of sharing the recipe that was passed down to me was nothing less than a blessing and wonderful opportunity.
Had Grandma lived to know her Paska recipe would appreciated by so many she surely would have blushed.
Judy was demonstrating Zwieback and so her and I each made a batch of dough an hour before class arrived so that we could seamlessly demonstrate making dough (another batch) and then pan our dough onto pans.
Bev was our Green Bean Soup demonstrator and it was fun to quiz the class to see who knew what the most significant herb is in the soup ..and then to see who knew what it was in German.
The class had a wonderful range of participants aged from young women all the way to Oma's.
Ellen ..shared authentic Russian Paska Spread which can only be described as Souffle light fluff which pairs just beautifully with Paska.
I just feel incredibly humbled and blessed for the opportunity to share what we've been taught by our mothers and grandmothers with the next generation.
The ladies that came to learn and watch are so gracious in allowing us to learn to teach in their presence.
Charlotte Lepp's Mom and daughter joined us on our side of the counter to do some Oma/granddaughter teaching of Zwieback. What a treat to see the three generations side by side enjoying a task that has been handed down through the generations.
We are so excited to be partnering with Lepp Farm Market to equip the kitchen at Matthew's House.
All the proceeds of the classes are being donated ...both the girls and Lepp's.
Wondering when the next class is?
I wish you a very special week dear ones.
Christ is risen!
all for now.
