One Royal Wedding in Windsor - Cameras rolling - Action ! 

A story of a lasting love from two different people coming from two different backgrounds from two different races and most of all from two very different continents. 

On May 19th 2018 at the core of the Royal Town of Windsor all of the above will be united into one !

In ancient times this Union was celebrated by embracing the couple by a large pretzel around them to seal their everlasting love in Matrimony.

Here at The German Bakery of Windsor we have created the Royal Wedding Pretzel to celebrate this special occasion. 

Long live the Prince and his wife.

The White Gold for the Germans in Spring 2018 



It is impossible to overstate the love the Germans have for this precious vegetable. 

Spargelzeit is the name when in April the Germans pack their vans cars to head into the Country side 

to enjoy the first ray of Sunshine after a cold and logn winter and to experience the first mound of white asparagus. 

On average each man, woman and child eats four pounds of asparagus during that time, and as there must be those who

don’t like the “Royal Vegetable”, Koenigsgemuese. Here in the UK you could also enjoy this fresh

vegetable by ordering through us with next day delivery to all of the UK including

the Islands.

BLACKFOREST & BEYOND TOURS - Exploring the Black Forest in style
The Black Forest region in southern Germany is famous for its colourful costumes, the Bollenhut and the cuckoo clocks. But it is also famous for breads like double crust Schwarzwaldbrot light rye breads, perfect for traditional sandwiches with Black Forest Ham. Black Forest Rye bread goes into the oven at high temperature, which is quickly lowered, to give this bread its rich, dark double crust. This mild tasting rye is hand-made in small batches with a whole grain wheat and whole grain rye mix.
The baking of bread is only one of the many traditions still alive in the Blackforest. Join us on one of our Blackforest day trips: observe the cuckoo clock makers, the glass blowers or the wood carvers at work. And for lunch we take you for a traditional vesper, that’s how we call our hearty cold lunches: bread, butter, blackforest ham, different kind of sausages. And for desert a slice of Blackforest Gateau.

Many false beliefs exist around nutrition and in the case of bread the popular myth is that it should be eliminate or restrict when being on a weight loss diet. This false belief according to which carbohydrates make you fat and lack nutritional importance, has caused bread consumption to fall far behind the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations to eat bread several times a day. A number of European countries recommend a daily bread intake of about 250g, which corresponds to 4-8 slices depending on national food habits (World Health Organization, 2003). 
In fact eating Eating whole grains breads is a sound weight loss strategy. 
On a normal day people on a 2,000-calorie eating plan need six servings a day rom the grain group. That includes all bread, pasta, oatmeal. At least half of those should be whole grains. 
Rye bread is 100% wheat-free, it helps alleviate bloating and discomfort helping you feel more energetic on a daily basis. It contains four times the fibre and 20% fewer calories than wheat sliced bread. Because it is difficult to separate the germ and bran from the endosperm of rye, rye flour usually retains a large quantity of vitamins, minerals, nutrients, in contrast to wheat flour. 
Rye bread to lose weight? 
Losing weight requires you to burn more calories than you consume. A combination of moving more and eating less creates this deficit. Eating less, though, can mean you have to endure feelings of hunger. Rye bread can help you feel fuller from meals, so you don’t find sustaining the dietary restrictions as overwhelming. Substitute rye bread or rye crisp bread for your typical whole-wheat toast as part of a low-calorie breakfast to support weight loss.

The Muddy Stilettos Awards 2016 
In this year, 2016, for the celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday, the German Bakery of Windsor has created a unique loaf, especially for The Queen, with the finest combination of the finest of natural grains; rye and spelt. 
The loaf is specially baked by Stefan Hamann, one of the best German Master Bakers in the UK and the only one in Windsor. Herr Hamann has seven years of training and education in the art of baking. He holds a German Master Degree Diploma in is the latest in four generations of Master Bakers. Stefan comes from the birthplace of Prince Albert – Coburg in Germany. 
Prince Albert introduced many Christmas traditions to the UK whilst Stefan Hamann has introduced the art of German bread baking to these islands – creating the best and healthiest bread in the UK. 
Bread is a core building block of the food pyramid, with suggested consumption of bread and other grains at six to eleven portions per day. This concept has been as important to the people of Germany, as it has to the people of the UK. Its consumption aids in the prevention of obesity and chronic diseases and its reassuring sustenance is welcomed during good times and bad. 
For the Queen we hope that this unique German bread can play an important role in her daily diet. German bread is increasing in popularity, due in part, to its robust nutritional value and delicious taste. 
Rye and spelt were selected for this loaf, for their unmodified nature – the highest quality grains with the lowest gluten content. We believe that these quality grains reflect Her Majesty’s refined manners, and solid devotion to duty, endlessly dependable and always with a courteous and gentle smile regardless of the weather or occasion. 
This exquisite bread can only be named “The Queen’s Loaf”. With this bread we wish Her Majesty good health and longevity. We look forward to her 100th birthday when we shall create a unique cake for her centenary celebrations. 
Long live the Queen

Wheat has a very complicated modified genetic structure in the seeds and is high in gluten. Rye is very low in gluten, but in a form which is not able to form the tight, stretchy network found in wheat flour. Rye flour has a really high protein and fibre content as well as good levels of Zinc, Iron and Calcium. Wheat has high GI meaning the carbs are quickly absorbed sending blood sugar levels to soar — not good news for the waistline and reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes. 
Rye reduces body weight 
In this study conducted at Lund University in Sweden, mice were fed whole grain diets based on either wheat or rye, for 22 weeks. Body weight, glucose tolerance, and several other parameters were measured during the study. The researchers concluded that whole grain rye “evokes a different metabolic profile compared with whole grain wheat.” Specifically, mice consuming the whole grain rye had reduced body weight, slightly improved insulin sensitivity, and lower total cholesterol. 
Rye lowers insuline response and improves glucose and suppress hunger 
In the fight against diabetes and obesity, foods that produce a low insulin response and suppress hunger can be extremely useful. Scientists at Lund University in Sweden examined the effects on 12 healthy subjects of breakfasts made from different rye flours (endosperm, whole grain rye, or rye bran) produced with different methods (baking, simulated sour-dough baking, and boiling). This cross-over study showed that the endosperm rye bread and the whole grain rye bread (especially the “sourdough” one with lactic acid) best controlled blood sugar and regulated appetite.

Benefits of Sourdough 
Sourdough doesn’t cause a spike in your blood sugars like processed white and wheat breads often do 
Sourdough is more digestible than standard loaves and more nutritious too. Lactic acids make the vitamins and minerals in the flour more available to the body. 
But most of all, Sourdough also render the gluten in flour more digestible and less likely to cause food intolerance.

Wheat is inflammatory and causes the same swelling you get with a sprained ankle but inside your body and because wheat seeds are genetically modified. The plants can grow “organically” as it is the seeds that has been modified !!!! Thus a growing number of people are switching to wheat-free diets as eating wheat increases the potential for a surprising number of health problems. 
Here’s why wheat whether wholemeal and organic is not good for you 
Back in the 1950s, scientists began cross-breeding wheat to make it hardier, shorter, and better-growing. This work, which was the basis for the Green Revolution — and one that won U.S. plant scientist Norman Borlaug the Nobel Prize — introduced some compounds to wheat that aren’t entirely human friendly. This being the reason why you have a wheat belly. The body is unable to digest it. Remember the modification is on the seed and not on the Plants. 
As cardiologist Dr. William Davis noted in his book, Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight and Find Your Path Back to Health, today’s hybridized wheat contains sodium azide, a known toxin. It also goes through a gamma irradiation process during manufacturing.
