Today, we FINALLY made it to Roswitha Huber. She is a star, really. “Simply” baking (real, delicious, home-made Austrian) bread? Our group of dedicated travel bloggers from all over Austria will all agree: Learning how to bake your own bread in the Rauris valley of Salzburg definitely is an experience in its own right.
” … And it’s all because of these two young students from Salzburg, whose film about the ‘Schule Am Berg‘ received an international award at a New York Film Festival, that the local TV stations got interested and broadcasted my Bread Festival. Actually, I was meant to give it all up! But the festival proved to be just the beginning. …”
She’s organising international Bread Festivals. She’s running individual & team workshops on how to bake your own bread. She’s written a book called “Gutes Brot“. Check out her wonderful place called the “Kalchkendlalm” about five minutes from Rauris in the local Rauris Valley: Do not miss.
Tourism development “beyond the horizon” of the Rauris Valley
Days like today entice us to let our spirits wander. Many of us have some great ideas for the local (tourism) development of the valley including interactive, sustainable and local (authentic) tourism experiences. Life is good: A warm, welcoming parlour with a tiled stove offers comfort and shelter from the cold of winter, cats chicken and goats roam the farm, the smell of fresh bread lingers, spiced up by the laughter & stories of Roswitha Huber, who in German is also known as the “Eigenbrötlerin“.
Her very own personal stories are “only” shared with us, though – the travel bloggers of Austria! (during a coffee break without cameras or podcasts 😉 ). Come and see her to find out yourself.
And because I loved it so much, I have decided to take you with me. Right into the Kalchkendlalm. Live from the kitchen and later on presenting fresh loaves of bread. Watch Roswitha Huber in action and listen to her magnificent Austrian dialect which best translates into “the love” that goes into “making your own bread”. A feast for the senses!
Still haven’t had enough? I agree. Enjoy my pictures of the day:
