The German Settlement Heritage Society of Hudson, Wisconsin is hosting a bread bake at the restored brick oven on June 1, 2014 from 4-6 p.m.
The restored brick oven is at 837 County Rd. N, Hudson, WI 54016 (5 miles east of Hudson, WI) and is on the site of the first German settlement in the area, the Nicholas Schwalen farm.
Nutrition and Outreach Specialist Ross Safford will be conducting the demonstration with his humor, dough-tossing techniques, and stories of baking bread.
Here are a few photos of last year's bread bake, which was as much a fascinating history lesson as it was a delicious, bread-eating experience.
Be sure to sign up for the RSS feed for this blog, as next week there will be a special post on the German Settlement Cemetery, which you can also visit when you head out to the bread bake. In fact, you can see the cemetery from the site of the brick oven!
