Advanced Audio Blog S3 #5 - Are You Addicted to German Bread and Rolls?
Today Sarah talks about a problem many Germans face when going abroad: bread and rolls. German breads and rolls are totally unlike their American, British or even French equivalents, so that many Germans are showing withdrawal symptoms when on holiday unless they were forewarned and brought some good old German "grey bread" (wholegrain bread) or "black bread" (more extreme version of wholegrain bread) for that purpose. If they're actually staying abroad longer, they scour entire cities looking for a single bakery that can produce bread of a similar consistency as German bread (hint: it hardly budges if you try to crunch it). For both the morning and the evening meal, bread is expected to be the most filling ingredient. Germany is definitely a bread-addicted culture, also shown in the number of bakeries within walking distance of any home. Let Sarah tell you more about the secrets of German bread and rolls!
