What makes The Backhaus unique is that every item is crafted in the traditional methods that were common to the trade before the modernization of factories and big-box outlets.

Our passion for baking reflects in the quality of our products. Our German Bakers and Pastry Chefs pursue a strong emphasis on authenticity with our artisan made products. To keep the the old traditional recipes alive, we use imported flours as well as many other imported ingredients.

 Backhaus History and Name Origin

In ancient times, there were no stores,
shops and of course, bakeries were unheard of.

The ordinary people cooked and baked in their own homes on open fires.

When the Roman Empire ruled over Europe in the 17th century,
baking inside private homes was no longer permitted,
due to fire hazards and extensive wood consumption.

Consequently, every township built a baking facility for their community.
It was called “Backhaus” i.e. baking house.

The wood-fired ovens were lit up once a week and everybody was able to bring their cooking or baking items. This was commonly practiced over the last centuries however died off slowly when Bakeries evolved. Recently people discovered the beauty of the old tradition, the sharing of common interest, togetherness, and most of all the taste of wood-fired baked bread. Many Backhaus’ still exist are being restored and so the culture of backing in wood-fired Backhaus’ is coming back again.
