Good bread does not need many ingredients. Do you often wonder when
you see the vast range of ingredients on the back side of supermarket bread?

Old traditional recipes and the experience that Meinolf has gained as a baker in 40 years guarantees the highest quality. The secret of quality is to allow the dough to have more time for fermentation.  Our sourdough is made fresh daily in store. Good bread needs: Flour, sourdough, water, salt and a little bit of fresh yeast. Combined with slow baking, to get the real taste & aromatic flavor of German bread - the true best bread in the world. Don't just trust our word, try it for yourself.
