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  Sams sourdough class was one of the finest I have attended.A class packed with an indepth knowledge on breads, but at the same time simplified so that even an amateur can grasp it.Her love and passion for breads is pretty evident and it trickles down to every student.An important attribute to any teacher is her patience and her willingness to give it her all...sam is definitely one such teacher.���Wishing you all the very best sam for all your future endeavours and thanks a ton for a funfilled class�

    5 star review  Before you begin to teach someone, you must be in love with your craft and know the science and math and logic behind it. Happy to have attended a #krumbkraft module by Samruddhi , and return with a perfect loaf and a San Francisco starter... and the priceless skill that she helped me acquire... so now SourDough breads will be part of my repretoire too. ��� And had an amazing day with fellow bread enthusiasts. My only crib...the long drive ,from rural south bombay to the ultra hip suburbs in Malad�����

  • 5 star review  One of the best and insightful learning sessions on Artisan Bread. The knowledge Samruddhi shares is beyond expectations with the confidence she passes to each of us during the session, making us confident to work on our own with our own mistakes and learnings by the end of the workshop. Great job Samruddhi and may all your plans to grow with the group come true! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    5 star review  Samruddhi was amazing -- organised, friendly, patient and a wonderful teacher. I took a basic bread baking class and it was fantastic. I just love doing breads at home now. They say, Yeah Dil Mange More! So I went back to her for a cake decorating class and learnt many different techniques right from baking a cake, to slicing, to crumb coating to making figurines. Just finished with my class today, learnt a lot and can't wait to recreate. A Big Big Thank you Guruji, very happy to have met you.
