The trend to quality bread has been increasingly constant and you, our customers have been supporting this trend by loving our bread, which is prepared in a traditional hand-baked way, by artisan bakers in Germany.
TELL ME ABOUT SOURDOUGH!
Sourdough bread is never cheap, as it takes very long and demands specialised skills to make. But once you try it, you will be hooked. It has a chewiness, a flavour and a satisfying depth to it that could not compete with any other bread. And it has a long history. We know that for several thousands of years ago, somewhere – perhaps in Egypt – a baker noticed that flour and water mix was fermenting – and expanding. It smelt a bit funny. But the baker stuck it in the oven nonetheless and experienced for his first time its wonderful aroma. The sourdough was born. Nowadays more and more people are delighted to find they can eat sourdough bread without bloated belly discomfort. In the long slow fermentation that produces sourdough bread, important nutrients such as iron, zinc and magnesium, antioxidants, folic acid and other B vitamins become easier for our bodies to absorb. Additionally, in the sourdough process, gluten is broken down and rendered virtually harmless. Hence, there could be nothing better for you and your family than a wonderfully freshly baked artisan sourdough bread from brot.
How a bread roll earned its name
‘Kaiser’ is a German word and means ‘Emperor’.
There is a most charming story referring to the Emperor Joseph II. who welcomed a delegation of bakers to his palace in Vienna in 1789. It is said that the Emperor was very fond of the bread roll he was presented. So, the bakers asked whether they may name this roll after him.
The Kaiser granted this wish and since then the roll is named
The first evidence for the Kaiser roll dates back to 1760 and is a painting. The painting shows Kaiser rolls on the dinner table of the Imperial Court.
Can you identify the Kaiser Rolls in the painting?
