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. Launched in Switzerland in October 2020, it’s become a bestseller.

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.
