I found bread. Real bread.

I went to swissbäkers. And I went a little crazy. I literally brought home a huge bag full of…bread. I’m pretty confident that we’ll be eating bread for the next month.


Let me just say that our faces instantly LIT up when we were munching on all the Zopf, Weggli, whole weat bread, Wähe, Schinkengipfeli last night..awww…too good. It’s SO true, it’s the simple things in life that make you happy.


Got a bit confused about this one as they call Zopf Challah here.

Whole wheat bread




To all the Swiss people reading this: Don’t forget to be grateful for the great bread you have available. Think of me and Philipp when you’ll be devouring it this weekend at brunches.

I’m happy for you. Really.  

To all the American readers: Go try the bread for yourself, you’ll never want to eat your bread again. Check out the swissbäkers website or follow them on Facebook (again this is not a sponsored post. I SO WISH it was though…maybe someone from swissbäkers is reading this?!)

What is it that you miss the most when you’re abroad? That would be interesting to hear.

Have a fantastic weekend! Greetings from New York.

Disclaimer: The Schinkengipfeli didn’t make it for the shooting, but it was good.

    Omg! It says Grüezi on the bag? So this is not the “German Bakery” / “Swiss Cheese” kind of fraud you typically run into in the US, congrats!!!!

    Happy you found the Swiss bakery, bread in Switzerland must be world’s best and if home-baken by your mom, even more so!
    Enjoy the weekend in New York ( formerly New Amsterdam) and treat yourselves to some dough-nuts ( formerly “oli koeken” )..there you go: the Dutch folks DID leave their footprint over there, too…..let’s talk about this with “Oma Holland” over the holidays 😉
    Cheers & kind regards
