Culinary team building: Hof University practices baking!

A group of 19 people from administration, science and teaching recently took part in an event of a kind that is not quite usual – at least for a university. Through the mediation of Chancellor Ute Coenen, they had the opportunity to refresh their own knowledge of the art of baking on the premises of the specialist wholesaler Leonhardt & Saalfrank in Döhlau.

On site, after a friendly welcome by Managing Director Kerstin Saalfrank, the participants were first introduced to the topic by a video about the family business, which has been in existence since 1924 and today supplies a large number of bakeries, confectioneries and ice cream parlors. But then the motto was, “Bake it yourself!”

Equipped with T-shirts and chic baking aprons, the group got down to business: everyone was able to make their own bread and a yeast plait during the next hour. Fortunately, all the amateur bakers were supported by two competent helpers: On the one hand by Norbert Fischer from the company “Leonhardt & Saalfrank” and on the other hand by Thomas Weber, who works as a scientific employee and research consultant at the Institute for Information Systems (iisys), but is originally a trained baker himself. The tasty products of the day were correspondingly positive and successful, and everyone was of course allowed to take them home.

The wealth of information about the high-quality products and baking with sourdough and yeast dough turned out to be particularly worth knowing – and the tips on kneading and shaping the dough also went down very well with the participants.

Chancellor Ute Coenen presented the hosts with a gift basket as a thank you and drew an all-round positive conclusion:

“It was a wonderful and successful event in a great location in a good atmosphere and with wonderful hosts!”

At the end of the event, the university team was invited by Leonhard & Saalfrank to enjoy a scoop of ice cream from their own production.
