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  Finally got to a sourdough class, and one that has me completely addicted. Hands on, fun, satisfying, great learning experience... and of course dangerously addictive! 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 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  Baking using sourdough seemed very complicated to me. Making us understand that , it's just another type of yeast ,Sam made it too simple for us. Extremely talented ,cool headed ,very down to earth person, Sam is always reachable, even after the completion of the course. All the foreign terms which was going above my head made me quite nervous to start. May be that's the case in many of the bakers. So she starts with explaining that it's not that complicated as everybody thinks. No question is simple or hilarious to her. She takes every question or doubt very seriously and replies. And that may be many times as well. At the end of the class she is still as fresh as she started when we were all nearly dead ��. Our batch was very coperative and loving and it seemed like we were a family. Loved every moment of the day and we have all started baking sourdough now.

    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!

  • 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!
