About Me

Hi there, I’m Samruddhi Nayak and the founder of Krumb Kraft.

I’ve been in the field of food related education, since the last 10 years.

I started my first venture “Whisk and Whip” as a trainer in chocolate making, and continued as a designer cake trainer, conducting over 40 hands-on workshops and training over 200 students.

Over time, I’ve shifted focus exclusively towards breads and European Baking.

I’ve completed my Diploma in European Baking from “Akademie Deutsches Bäckerhandwerk Weinheim e.V. Germany” in 2016 and subsequently apprenticed in a renowned German Bakery for a period of 3 months.

Smitten by the bread baking bug, and engulfed with the vision of bringing the art of Sourdough baking from Europe to India, I’ve started “Krumb Kraft”, a unique venture in training and consulting in the area of European baking and Sourdough breads, all using locally available ingredients.

Since then, this venture has been a tremendous success. I’ve conducted hands-on workshops across India to a variety of audience that includes Bread Enthusiasts, Chefs and College Students.

I also specialize in providing European baking consultation to restaurants and training institutes.

In line with the vision of KrumbKraft, I’ve started a vibrant Facebook community around bread baking – “Indian Artisan Bread Bakers”, with more than 2000 participating members as on today and counting.

  • 5 star review  I feel very lucky that someone cancelled at last minute and I got chance to attend the SD class by Samruddhi 🙂 Got to learn the science and maths of SD baking and now can successfully read the SD recipes and produce good SD breads. The learning is not just limited to just one class, through the group she has for her students, we keep learning daily as we go forward in this bread journey for that perfect boule!

And what a teacher we have in Samruddhi!!! Patient, relentlessly willing to explain every doubt we have and picking our brains once in a while so that we stay sharp� The after course support from her is priceless!

    5 star review  Even though i had attended other bread classes and baked some. I wanted to learn about sourdough breads, and Samruddhi was the one i was looking to. Attended her workshop just last week. She is such a nice pleasant person when you meet and a patient and strict teacher. She sees that each one of us attending her class has mastered the art. Imparts with all the tips and tricks of the method. Brings to your knowledge about the different flours and also the 'bakers math' which i was not aware. Thanks Sam for the awesome class . Looking forward to attending more of your classes in the advanced stages if any. Thanks and regards.

  • 5 star review  Got an opportunity to learn the basics of bread making from the 'Queen of breads' Samruddhi herself. It was a great learning experience. Made the bread making seem so easy and fun with her clear instructions. Samruddhi was so eager and open in sharing her tips and tricks also. Can't wait to make a loaf of bread on my own.

    5 star review  I attended a basic sour dough class at Krumbkraft. I am very happy with techniques and steps taught in handling the sourdough. Though it is simple yet understanding the science behind it is important. Samruddhi is informative and patiently clears all the doubts and helps her students gain confidence in exploring the world of sourdough breads confidently. Post class she is fully engaged with her students and always responds to guiding them. It was fun and lots of laughter. Wish you many more accolades and success Samruddhi!!!

  • 5 star review  When I first saw her Sour Dough Bread, i knew i HAD to attend her next workshop. And it was such an awesome workshop. Apart from being such a fun day, we learnt so much about Sour Dough Breads. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who love breads and would love to make their own. Samruddhi is a great teacher spending time with each one of us answering all our queries not only during the workshop but even afterwards. You will no doubt be able to serve perfect, warm bread to your family.

    5 star review  Samruddhi is an amazing teacher..so patient with all even when the same question is asked to her repeatedly! Totally enjoyed the baking session with her & the best part is that she unlike others in the industry doesn't keep tricks up her sleeves; rather willingly shares all her knowledge for her pupils to do better !

  • 5 star review  The absolute best place to go if you want to learn the art of baking bread. I went in as a complete novice who had a very basic idea of how to handle bread doughs and I've come out so much more confident and knowledgeable. I attended both the Breads around the world and Sourdough workshops----Samruddhi, you're the nicest and most patient teacher and you made everything feel so easy!

    5 star review  Had tried my hand at baking SD breads but just could not get it to work. I heard of Samruddhi's class in Pune only after it was over so had to wait patiently till the next one came along. Sure enough it was the best learning I have done in some time. Hats of to Samruddhi she knows her stuff and is very patient with her students going through every details to make you understand the art involved in making a perfect SD bread. Since the class I have been completely hooked on to SD breads and have not looked back. Its been a couple of months and Samruddhi's support and constant encouragement is really opening up various possibilities of making some fine bread.
