Class Overview

In your Cooking Class with Chef Anna, you will learn how to make three delicious traditional German recipes that will transport the tastes and smells of the Rothenburg's popular Christmas markets to your kitchen. We'll get things started off right by making Feuerzangenbowle, a traditional German Christmas drink (think fun twist on mulled wine). Then we'll get our dessert started (stuffed apples!) so it can be baking while you learn how to roll and prepare noodles with sauerkraut & bacon.

Meet your Chef: Anna Olsen

Chef Anna is the co-owner of Adventure Bavaria, which offers day trips to the Bavarian alps and cultural experiences such as Bavarian cooking courses and beer tastings.

Chef Anna has been sharing your knowledge of Bavarian culture since 2017. Anna shares her childhood experiences and recipes with her guests at her Bed & Breakfast Farmhouse.

What we'll be making


Feuerzangenbowle is a traditional German alcoholic drink that starts with mulled wine and you add a rum soaked sugar cube that drips into your drink. It's basically Christmas in a cup! Such a fun start to any holiday evening.

Schupfnudeln mit Kraut Und Speck

We’ll use potatoes and a fun rolling technique to make these uniquely shaped potato noodles. These will go perfectly with a a bit of the German style mustard and sausages from your TROVE box.

Brat Apfel

We'll end the meal with a perfectly balanced dessert. These are common in Bavaria during the winter months and will fill your home with the most unbelievable fragrance. Best topped with ice cream!
