« A Fougasse quartet | Main | A winter salad: Sicilian Fennel and Orange Salad »

February 20, 2004



I'm not sure what that says about me (or if I want to know), but even though I've never set foot in Jena and don't know if I ever will, I read your local reviews with great interest! :)


i luv eating any kind of bread in germany. always so light and fluffy. very different from the one's here in malaysia.


Although I like a good ciabatta a lot, here in liguria there are seldom breads that are "heavier", if you know what I mean, everything just so fluffy and good only for one day...I do miss the german breads a lot. It was very nice to read your review!


Clotilde: thanks for the comment. I have to admit that this post was in my head since a while and a few of your posts (those about shopping and co.) convinced me to post this. My doubts are probably caused by the fact that I live in small, quiet Jena, where very few tourists visit, while you...well you live in wonderful, fashionable Paris .. just a tad different ;-).

Wena and Hande: After reading your comments side to side I started laughing. Just out of curiosity, how's the bread in Kuching made wena? I must say I find German bread fluffy maxbe (depends on the kind) but light is not a term I would use.

Hande: I can understand what you mean about Italian bread and the longing for German ones, or actually I should say northern Italian bread. OK, I lived ages in Naples, so I'm partial. Still I findbread in southern Italy is often still that rustic bread that could be eaten for a week (admittedly by the end of the week quite dry-ish), shaped in big rounds using sourdough. Not that I don't like bread in Northern Italy, it can be really nice, but your complain about it going dry is spot on.
