Nicky Krieger-Loos is from Dudelange/Luxembourg. In 1987, as a member of the La Ronde Bettembourg folk dancing group, she visited for the first time communities in the Midwest settled by Luxembourg immigrants in the 19th century. Over the years has stayed in touch with numerous descendants of these immigrants. With her husband Carlo and their children Claire, Louis and Lucie, they have moved around the world and lived in the USA, Austria, Russia, China, and currently in Brasilia. This way she has discovered many new food styles, recipes and attended cooking classes in many different places. An optician by training, she now pursues her hobbies cooking, baking crazy birthday cakes, quilting, and upcycling all kinds of fabrics from worn-out jeans to her children’s old clothes. She also teaches cooking classes with traditional dishes as well as folk dances with Luxembourg descendants in their communities in Brazil.
The live baking workshop on March 28 will be all about baking one of Luxembourg’s most traditional pastries, the famous « Bretzel ». Our host, Marc Weydert, will not only show you how to bake it step by step from their kitchen in Brussels, but he’ll also provide you with the recipe and talk about the tradition linked to « Bretzel » Sunday and the related Easter egg giving on Easter Sunday.
