Vienna's best breads

Europe sets the standard for good, wholesome, hearty breads. And Vienna is upping the 'brot' ante for the comeback of artisan bread. Too long now has Vienna loafed around with heavily, commercially manufactured bread and now it looks for a slice of the crusty good life.


The renaissance of small bakeries in Vienna is full on - here are a couple of snaps taken around the back streets where the aroma of freshly baked bread drew me into the bakery for a bun or two.

I was taken around the city bakeries by 'Brot Andi', Andreas Djordjevic, an institution in Vienna. Andreas is in charge of the bread cart in the two Michelin-starred Steirereck, the best restaurant in Vienna. The restaurant is divine with the most beautiful ceiling, amazing food styling - and flavour of course - and then there's the brot . . . .
