und man kriegt es doch…/ it does exists…

(English version follows below)

….nämlich ordentliches Brot in der Schweiz. Es mag stereotypisch deutsch sein, aber wir sind mit unserem Brot ja etwas eigen. Egal ob Schweden, Schottland oder Schweiz – ich sehne mich immer ein bisschen nach ordentlichem Schwarzbrot. Anscheinend bin ich da nicht alleine, denn in Schottland gab es zum Beispiel tatsächlich für die deutschen Botschafter einen Brotlieferdienst (was unser damaliger Vermieter gerne genutzt hat, obwohl er Engländer war).

Das beste Brot in der Schweiz, das gibt es definitiv bei den Bauern. Und im heutigen Fall beim Bauern zwei Dörfer weiter. Ihr wisst schon, der mit den Kühen und dem Joghurt. Da war nämlich der Rest der Familie heute während ich Kleiderkisten sortiert habe.

Und weil das Brot so lecker war, ist es auch fast schon wieder aufgegessen. Am Sonntag gibt’s dann wieder frischen Zopf.

(Und das allerleckerste Brot backen übrigens unsere Freunde! Denn so richtig schönes Schwarzbrot, das gibt’s selbst in der Schweiz nicht immer zu kaufen!)

…proper bread in Switzerland. I mean PROPER bread! It might be one of the stereotpical German things, but I do admit that we are somewhat particular when it comes to bread. No matter if its Sweden, Scotland or Switzerland – after a while I always start longing for proper brown bread. And apparently I am not the only one as we discovered that the German ambassadors in Edinburgh apparently have a special bread delivery service (which our landlord happily used as well, despite him being English).

If you are looking for really good bread in Switzerland, you should go to the little farmer shops. Especially the one two villages away from us. You know, the one with the cows and the yoghurt. That’s where the rest of the family went to today while I was sorting boxes with children clothes.

And because this famers bread is indeed delicious, there is hardly any left this evening. But on Sunday they’ll sell freshly baked braided white loaf again!

(The most delicious bread is, however, baked by our friends. Because even in Switzerland it’s hard to find real, proper brown bread!)

 

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
