Swiss Bread Book

Swiss Bread / Brot Huusgmacht / Pains Maison

Written in English and translated into German and French by Helvetiq, my Swiss Bread book has over 300 pages. It was first published in October 2020.

What you’ll find in my Swiss Bread book:

  • 42 recipes for delicious Swiss breads from around the country and the stories behind them (who invented them, their history, my personal experiences and more).
  • Dozens of incredible images of my homemade breads from photographer Dorian Rollin with food styling by Camille Stoos.
  • Profiles of 5 artisanal Swiss bakeries from Switzerland’s different linguistic regions.
  • My bread-baking tips and tricks, including my favorite tools and an easy recipe for a sourdough starter.
  • Background information on Switzerland’s bread culture, flour types and more, such as where the oldest preserved bread was found.
