Skill Level: Advanced to Professional

Heike was born and raised in Berlin, Germany and started baking as a child. She studied Food & Nutrition as well as Tourism & Foreign Languages. Traveling after school she visited bakeries around the world and finally settled after meeting her husband Jens in New York. In 2008 they moved to Vermont with the dream to open a school around the craft of natural baking and food education. Heike learned the art of bread baking at Weichard Brot, Berlin's oldest biodynamic bakery, and with Jeffrey Hamelman at King Arthur Flour & Bakery in Vermont. She has studied with craft bakers at Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, Blue Hill at Stone Barnes in New York, Dave Miller in California and many others around the world. She regularly returns to the German National Baking Academy in Weinheim/Germany to advance her professional education. Brot Bakehouse School and Kitchen makes many varieties of German Christstollen every winter - known as probably one of the most original German Stollen you will find in the US.
