Review: Lieken Urkorn Stollen, 275g
In a perfect world I would go to the baker (or butcher, fishmonger etc.) without a doubt that he or she made sure that the products are entirely satisfactory in every aspect. But a glitch in the matrix apparently made the world semi-perfect. It needs heavy improvement upon. That is how I got to bake my own bread. But the goal of my bread-baking is not to be become self-sufficient. I like bakeries, and I like buying baked goods.
I remember loving my Lieken Urkorn bread with cheese or salami, as a child. The Stollen I bought today was not a good match for my warm memories of their bread.
