My name is Birgit, not 14 any more and typical German…
Some might not know it but it started all with cakes and biscuits. A range of bespoke handmade cakes and biscuits developed because I’ve been asked for it such as our Coffee Lover or Tea Lover.
A time I enjoyed due to the success and the fun of creating something new.
A time I started to add bread to our range: our first plain sourdough!
And just as a one off something special for a wedding: Olive and sun-dried tomato bread! Which later on have been our first award winning products with some of our biscuits.
Soon they became bestseller!
Our Sour Dough Bread…
Based on an old recipe we are producing long proving Sour Dough Bread. It is like a good hung up meet. The more time you give the bread to prove, the better you can digest it, the longer it lasts, and the more it tastes.
We need just only a fraction of yeast to start the sour dough.
The tins are not greased like in other bakery. We are using greasing Paper. No cheap fat.
We are not using any additives. For the base loaf we Just use flour (Spelt, Rye, Wheat), water, a fraction of yeast and that’s it! And of course (depending on the bread type) our Seeds, Herbs, Cheese, Nuts, Raisins and crushed Chilis.
All the bread is hand made freshly on the day. We do not sell old bread, even the loafs are long lasting. We use local traders for the ingredients like County Cheese.
We are proud to say that the wastage is below 1% in a weeks time.
But at the end it is the taste what makes our loaves so successful. Try it out!
