The Big Pond US-German Listening Series #19: German Bread – A Nourishing Craft

In cooperation with American and German radio producers and broadcasters the Goethe-Institut USA produces roughly 50 radio features for a program titled The Big Pond. A US-German Listening Series. Features are being broadcasted nation-wide on a weekly basis. All are available for free download in podcast format.
In this episode: Germany is internationally renowned for its bread. With its diversity of more than 3000 varieties, the Germans are world champions in bread. Since 2014, German bread culture is even an immaterial world cultural heritage, recognized by UNESCO. But the traditional baker’s craft is threatened because there is a lack of new blood and competition from large-scale bakeries and cheap prebake stations.
