Learning the many secrets of being a baker has never been a cakewalk. But we believe that what doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger. Or in our case: crispier. It’s our traditional methods and generations-old recipes that help us get that crispy exterior and chewy interior on every bread by Joseph Brot.
Being a master of the trade is one part, the other is of course the ingredients. That’s why we handpick all of our suppliers to make sure that only the best goes into Jospeh Brot creations—and that only the best comes out of the oven.
And our oven, ovens with an S to be more precise, are located at our artisanal bakery in Burgschleinitz. Here, we have 35 bakers handcrafting our baked creations in the midst of beautiful forests and fields.
Don’t believe us? Then come by and watch us work. We’ve got a massive glass front at Kirchenheidestraße 18, 3730 Burgschleinitz for curious passers-by—be it foxes and hares or hungry bread seekers.
Seek and you will find! For those bread-ready bellies, our bakery is open Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6:30AM to 12:30PM, Fridays from 6:30AM to 6PM, and Saturdays from 7AM to 12:30PM. You can also give us a call at: +43 664 88 22 68 33.
THE WINDS OF CHANGE ARE HERE
And it smells of fresh baked breads and pastries! Smack dab in the middle of a wide-open field is the brand new Joseph artisanal bakery, an architectural bow to Mother Nature. Here, we bake and create our bread and pastries behind massive glass fronts keeping us connected to the surrounding splendor—rain and shine, flora and fauna. From this amazing location, we supply our four Vienna locations, and restaurants and markets as well.
There are several reasons why we find the location perfect. First, Josef is a local boy from Waldviertel and is thrilled to provide his “turf” with new jobs. Second, it’s perfectly situated close to several producers who are always ready to restock our warehouse with 100% organic ingredients. And last, but not least, this place is heaven on Earth—no better place in the world to bake bread than in Burgschleinitz’ beautiful surroundings.
INCREDIBLE FLAVOR FROM UP THE ROAD
As we’ve mentioned repeatedly, our suppliers are essential to the success of Jospeh Brot. Without top quality products from 100% organic farms, we would never meet our own high standards. To find such a-level producers, we spared no expense.
Fortunately for us, Austria is blessed with ample producers who apply the same quality standards and commitment to sustainability to their products as we do to ours.
TAKE MATTERS INTO
YOUR OWN HANDS
That is our bakery’s guiding principle. And we’re true to our word, hand kneading and hand forming our dough before placing it into the steam oven and baking it twice. It sounds stressful.
But have no fear: it’s only our bakers doing the work—our dough spends up to 48 hours resting before getting some R&R in the ovens. The benefit of only using traditional baking methods: a very crunchy crust and a divinely chewy center.n.
