Bo Bech Bakery – Copenhagen, Denmark

Bo Bech Bakery - Copenhagen, Denmark Bo Bech Bakery - Copenhagen, Denmark
As I mentioned before – the most important thing when coming to a new city is to find all the good bakeries. And at Bo Bech, we found a bakery that while it produces only one product – a loaf of bread – it produces what I would have to consider as the best bread that I have ever eaten. We purchased three of these very large loaves in three days, just to give you an idea of how good it is.

Bo Bech previously had a restaurant, Paustian, that has closed and will apparently be re-opening in a new location in 2011. In the mean time, he has opened a bakery that only produces a single product – one size of a loaf of whole wheat bread, that is stunningly good.

How good is it? This year in Paris we went through some of the list of the ‘best baguette in Paris’ for 2010, and this bread is better than all of the ones that we tried. While you might complain that we’re comparing apples and oranges, and indeed, a baguette is used for different foods than whole wheat bread – this is still better.

Taking four days to make a loaf might explain some of this. The crust is perfectly thick – crispy and chewy, and the interior is so delicately soft. And the flavour is so good that you want to eat the bread without any condiments – no jam, no nutella, no chorizo or gorgonzola – just the bread.

So – as they say that people are now coming to Copenhagen just to eat at Noma, I think they should add something to that list – don’t leave Copenhagen without buying a loaf at Bo Bech.
