To London for inspiration

Although a trip to London can be strenuous and expensive, Britain’s capital city is still unbeatable as a source of inspiration. A walk through Soho with its countless cafés, bistros and small restaurants is a pleasure if only because quite clearly more importance is again placed there on the inner quality of the baked products on offer than on decorating them as elaborately as possible. Examples of good addresses are Crumbs & Doilies or the branches of Gail’s. Although our photo gallery originates from another of Gail’s branches in Salisbury Road near Queen’s Park, this one is on a par with the other branches scattered all over the city.
Incidentally, a visit to the various German bakeries that have set up shop in London is also well worthwhile. One of these is Konditor & Cook in “The Gherkin” or at 39 Goodge Street, among other places, Their proprietor also writes in a blog in the British Baker which is highly respected in the UK and can also be found on his website. Other shops that stock German baked goods are Hansel & Pretzel, 71 Ham Street, Richmond upon Thames, or Bakehouse Bakery (in the Borough Market/175 Ashburnham Road, among other places) or Kipferl, an Austrian baker at 20 Camden Passage, N1 8ED. Of course Kamps und Ditsch are also represented in London.
Anyone with the time and inclination should also look around the farmers’ markets in London. Although at first glance some of them still look like organic produce markets from the nineteen-seventies, they are now an insider’s tip for people looking for good baked products. A list is available at:
