Bavarian water & Bavarian grain
The Steinleitners live and work in a region known as the breadbasket of Bavaria. "We only buy our flour and other ingredients from local suppliers if they're available in the high quality we require," says the baker. Moreover, he values sustainability, harmony with nature and the careful handling of bread, a staple food. In this way, he ensures that returns are not thrown away, but go to the Straubinger Tafel. “Around 220 additives are permitted in breadmaking. Of these, we use none! We only bake our bread with what Bavarian nature gives us.
Indispensable for Steffi and Markus Steinleitner: natural ingredients such as flour, water, natural salt, occasionally yeast, natural herbs or oils. However, most importantly, the dough needs rest as well as a lot of love. We bake the breads like grandmother used to bake them and let the dough rest for 72 hours. This makes them particularly tasty and easy to digest. In particular, they go well with wine and cheese, but can also be served simply with finely salted butter or dipped in olive oil.
