Quotes from 2016 attendees:

 Great class.  Inspiring and fun. 

Much more educational than I expected.  Made me feel I could go home and try to make my own pretzels!

Extremely knowledgeable and engaging speaker, I liked hearing about the science behind the cooking.






Shawn Rediske began his baking career as a hobby while working professionally as an engineer. Engineering developed his passion for process; time revealed a desire to help people and support sustainability. Shawn, is co-owner (with his wife, Raelyn) and baker at Water House Foods, in Lake Mills, WI, which opened in late 2008. Water House specializes in making tasty foods using Wisconsin and organic ingredients (over 65% of all the ingredients that Water House uses are sourced from Wisconsin). Self-taught, Shawn spends much of his time sharing what he’s learned by teaching baking and cooking classes and he is thrilled to be returning to Fermentation Fest for his 5th year of bread classes.
