For the final year, former Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver Chef Gerhard Weitzel will come out of retirement to bake his decades-old secret stollen recipe this holiday season. This famous German cake, rich with spices and flavours, makes a delicious and thoughtful holiday gift.
The recipe originated with former Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver chef, Gerhard Weitzel. In 2007, Gerhard retired, after 16 years of working for the hotel and a 50 year career dedicated to pastry. Since his retirement Gerhard has returned seasonally to create each loaf himself, much to the delight of guests and Vancouver locals. The white loaf is made of a yeast dough brimming with a mixture of nuts and fruits and a delicious marzipan filling. The holiday aroma and flavour of Gerhard’s stollen is set to accompany festive cheer throughout the city this season.
Stollen will be available for purchase at YEW seafood + bar for CAD 31 per loaf from November 26, 2019 until Christmas Day. Stollen lovers can also call 604.692.4939 to place orders of four or more.
