We’d like to honor some of the greatest bakers and bakeries from around the globe in our new book, and we would love to hear from the Fresh Loaf community to expand our search.

Central European cities - bakery recommendations?

June 22, 2015 - 1:44pm -- 108 breads

We're following the college daughter to her summer nanotech program (okay, yes, I'm proud), and adding on a trip. While my family is out hiking or drinking world-famous beer, I hope to be tasting the delights of bread in these cities: Berlin, Munich, Budapest, and Prague. I'm especially interested in what I think is the specialty of the region, rye breads. The only glitch is that I do not know of any bakeries there.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping for a transcendent and inspiring bread journey.

Specialist Cook Shops in Rome, Italy

June 22, 2015 - 10:57am -- Colin_Sutton

I visit Rome on holiday every couple of years and on my most recent trip I was on a mission to visit cook shops, largely looking for bread-baking products. I hope the following research helps other visitors, and encourage anyone with suggestions I've missed to add them into this thread.

Experienced using paper bakerware?

June 4, 2015 - 6:32am -- Helena

Hi everyone,

I am testing some cheesecake recipes for a cheese plant. So far I have been baking 9in cheesecakes in Kaiser Springform pans with mostly success except for some cracking (using convection mode) -also tried in a non springform 8 in and was a disaster, as could not get it out of pan.
