They're soft. They're dark. And they're undeniably handsome. We're talking about Bavarian style pretzels, the oldest snack food known to man and — quite possibly — the best food to enjoy alongside an ice cold beer.
In this episode, we chat with Katie Wessel, the expert baker behind Milwaukee Pretzel Co., makers of the city's most traditional German pretzels. With her help, we dig into a bit of pretzel history, uncover the secrets to a truly great soft pretzel and glean insights into the ingenuity it takes to run a from-scratch pretzel bakery. And you can bet we have a ton of fun along the way.
