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 attended a 2 day session with Samrudhi. Since I am an amateur baker I nowhere felt I wasn't able to manage, she put in all her efforts to make me and all others in the group understand the practical and theory of sourdough. A very encouraging teacher who knows her job right, not job, but passion right. Even post the workshop, she's there to answer all the queries and help whenever I get stuck. Thanks Sam. Looking forward to some more workshops with you.

  • 5 star review  Sourbread dough was in my to do list from long. Happened to taste Samrudhi's bread and fallen in love with it. When I joined her Sour bread workshop I was amazed with her in-depth knowledge and transparency in sharing the same. This was what I was looking for science of bread not just recipe. Love you Sam for introducing me to this mischievous Sourbread dough.

  • 5 star review  Attended the sourdough workshop yesterday and what fun it turned out to be. Sam's a lovely teacher and getting to bake my sourdough boule hands on felt just amazing. Amongst all the science and math involved we never stopped jumping around in excitement seeing the bread dough rising or while getting the boule nice and perfect and when the we finally had the result of a whole day's effort- all nice and warm. Thanks 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  I have been baking breads for a long time now but sourdough was left unexplored. I had been following Samruddhi and krumbkraft and had fallen in love with her sourdough breads�. And what could have been better than learning it from the master herself. It's a dream come true... She explained the concept so precisely, step by step, didn't left a patch for mistakes to happen.... And there I had in my hands...a very first, beautiful sourdough loaf made by myself independently �� I am very happy with my myself and this is the confidence Samruddhi put in me. Samruddhi, you are The Best...��... And the best thing is that..she is always there...for us to make perfect sourdough loaves. Thanks so much Samruddhi....���

Post Sam's class, life has never been the same. I hop between boules and crackers, dreaming of how the next bread will be. Thank you so much Sam. ���

  • 5 star review  I was in a search to learn the art of baking healthy breads and that's how I came across an article about Samruddhi and her workshop. After that I could not just wait at all asked for her next immediate classes and I made it up. To speak up honestly I knew nothing about SD breads, but after attending Sam workshop I could say it's really worth taking up. She teaches it with so much of patience and gives us all possible tips and tricks without holding back anything, it's hard to find to such an quality within a person who is into baking such niche product. Hats off to you Sam. After workshop help in clearing out queries and keep us going and assuring that we practice what we have learnt from you, that's a feather on to your cap. Would love to attend Ur nexy level workshops also. The kind of satisfaction that I get when I am giving something really healthy for my people around, that means a lot and lot and never money can carry it away Sam � it's all because of you. So my heartfelt thanks to you��

    5 star review  My love for bread eventually led me to learn of KrumbKraft and Samruddhi. When I heard of Samruddhi conducting a class in basic sourdough bread, I instantly signed up. The experience made me develop a new found respect for the art of baking bread and have fun while at it. In Samruddhi I found a patient teacher willing to let one catch up at their own pace with so many baking tips and tricks up her sleeve. I think her passion for sourdough has rubbed off on me and I can't wait to eventually excel at baking my own sourdough bread. Thank you Sam for making my maiden foray into baking bread so thoroughly enjoyable.
