Wheat

Landbrot

This round wheat loaf is leavened only by a multi-stage wheat sourdough. The big difference to all of my previous wheat sourdoughs was the multi-stage sourdough with a low TA of 160. The special thing about this basic wheat sourdough… weiterlesen

Vinschgerl

This thin, small and flat bread specialty is native to the South Tyrolean Vinschgau. For generations in Vinschgau, two small pieces of dough have been put together and baked as “Paarl” (couples) or individually as “Vinschgerl”. The couple was supposed… weiterlesen

Stirato – Italian Baguettes

“Stirato” is the name given to the  elongated, golden brown and aromatic baguette made by the Italians, but what is the difference to the French baguette? In terms of taste, it can easily compete with that of the French, but… weiterlesen

Pretzels

For these baked goods it is characteristic that the shaped dough is placed in a lye solution just before they are placed into the oven. This process is where the name “Laugengebäck” (Lye rolls) came from. The most well-known form… weiterlesen

Pane di Lariano

After having baked some French breads recently, I would now like to put up some recipes for Italian breads on the bolg. The first Italian bread from this sort is the well-known “Pane di Lariano”. The original recipe comes from… weiterlesen

Rustic Wholegrain Bread

Tabatiere

Country Wheat

Unfortunately, over the past few years only direct processing has been used in the production of wheat-based bread. In the last few decades, direct processes have displaced the familiar pre-dough processes such as sourdough and pre-dough. The use of pre-dough… weiterlesen

Flavor Rolls

For my next baking experiment I tried combining the salt-yeast process, a pre-dough, and a long, cold fermentation. Just as with other fermented products like wine and cheese, the long fermentation time increases the richness of flavor. Though these rolls… weiterlesen

White Loaves

My first experiment with the Salt-Yeast process favored this white bread. For me, this white bread is a classic but it has all but disappeared from the market in recent years. The quality of white loaves has been reduced by… weiterlesen
