food Science

Willkommen to our Summer Classes 2024! While the sun tickles your endorphines out of their shell, learning German will enhance your mood even further. Dive into the rich German culture and the quirky little ins and outs that this language provides, especially in relation to food!

Class Description

Have you ever wondered how the fermentation of Sauerkraut works or what pickling is? In this class our Food Scientist will teach you about the Science of German Food. You will learn about Bacterial Fermentation/ Fermented Foods, Pickling, Brining & Curing and Impact of pH in cooking. This class is meant for German students on the B1, B2 and C1 level and meets up at the DANK Haus every Monday for a 3-week-period. By the end of the class you will not only be more familiar with the science behind German food but you will also have a whole new set of vocabulary not learned in our core classes.

This class runs for 2.25 hours. This class covers CEFR Level B1 and above.

Meeting UP
