The Backhaus

Laying groundwork

History and name origin

In the 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 of 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.

We work all the time to deliver the best or nothing
