Van Melle is a passionate baker, an author and the chairwoman of the Slow Food Wien organisation. She is joined by the equally passionate master baker Simon Wöckl who learned his trade in Italian and Icelandic bakeries, studied agricultural sciences and who, like van Melle, is committed to traditional preparation methods, local ingredients and exceptional quality.
A new episode appears every Tuesday. Barbara and Simon reveal the most important techniques for beginners and advanced amateur bakers and present both simple and more complex recipes. Their aim is to provide a comprehensive guide to enjoyable and successful bread-baking at home.
