With the addition of homemade mustard and beer pairing suggestions, you’ll be fully equipped to host an Oktoberfest party of your own! Recipes include: whole wheat soft pretzels, pretzel-wrapped German sausages, and spiced beer mustard. Signed copies of Andrea’s book will be available for purchase. Supplies to bring: an apron and two kitchen towels
