Bavarian pretzels and black breads in Thetford bakery

The stores are full of ripe Quebec berries right now. But in Thetford Mines, it's also pretzel season - and people line up for them at the local marketplace.

Theda Weber-Lucks is the person who creates these addictive Bavarian pretzels. She runs a bakery in Thetford  - the Boulang√©rie Bretzel - which is also known for its German black breads and other artisanal goodies.

Thetford is about an hour south of Quebec City, and it's now home for Theda, who's originally from Germany. She tells Elizabeth Robertson how an avant-garde musicologist from Berlin ended up baking bread in Quebec.
