Brötchen! A common sight in our old home, but sorely missed here!

^ Indeed, every time we're on vacation in the US we're amazed that a whole people can go through life without proper bakery products

Very true! There are good bakeries here, you just have to know where to find them. Of course it will never be exactly the same because of differences materials and goods. I.e. Quark is not commonly available. When my wife bakes she has to substitute sour cream for Quark in her German cheesecake. All family and friends that visit us from Germany remark about not having the bread they are accustomed to at home.

However at one time in North America, bread was baked either at home or in small local bakeries owned my emigrants or their descendants in the manor that it was baked in their former homelands. These bakeries have largely disappeared, replace by large Supermarkets and factory baked bread.

I understand that this is happening in Germany as well. Even the corner bakery might be buying factory made Brötchen. Our friends and family tell us this. They don't have the same quality that they once had, when the baker got up early and baked fresh Bread, every day.

Kind regards,

Kelly

Same same in the Netherlands for the corner bakery(s) that get delivered most of theird bread (from a factory). Not that it is bad, but "more of the same". Luckly more & more very small local foodlovers have the courage to wake up (very) early and bake delicious breads of all kinds, although you'll have to pay for it (think triple the price). But what the heck, once a week I'll splash out and enjoy!
Together with some neighbours we made a deal the one of the bakeries (here in Delft) and they deliver 15 big sourdough breads (1kg each) fresh from the oven every saterday morning around 8am. Gotta love it !

It's true, just recently the bakery that made the best Brezen in Regensburg closed down - the owner's kids didn't want to carry on with the business and they didn't find anyone willing to buy the whole thing and run it.

I'm guessing by now 90% of baked goods are made by big corporations delivering pre-made dough that is baked in-store. The goods aren't terrible or anything, but they're just not as good as food from a real bakery...

Now that's quite a catch, Fred!
More Dyxumer, less photographer.
