Lea Zapf Marktpatisserie — Handmade Sweetness on Viktualienmarkt

Master patissier Lea Zapf has made her dream come true by moving into a typical green shack at the Viktualienmarkt. In the market patisserie she bakes with natural ingredients from the nearest surroundings. The eggs come from happy and free living chickens from the farm Gut Hollern in Eching. The Hofbräuhaus Kunstmühle grinds the flour.

Master patissier Lea Zapf has made her dream come true by moving into a typical green shack at the Viktualienmarkt. In the market patisserie she bakes with natural ingredients from the nearest surroundings. The eggs come from happy and free living chickens from the farm Gut Hollern in Eching. The Hofbräuhaus Kunstmühle grinds the flour. Lea prefers to bake as naturally as possible, because she is curious and tempted by the pure and full taste.


She has very high demands on her craftsmanship, which can be found and tasted in every detail of her creations. There are Luftikusse, a kind of cream puff, with creams of Pistachio, boiled caramel and lemon curd. Chocolate tart on a puffed quinoa slice with a cover of peanut cream, gorgeous cinnamon slices and cheese cake. Fresh lemonades and coffee rounds off the range. Tradition thus meets a mixture of French and German baking art and unfolds in its artful own creations.


For Lea, baking is an art form and the taste is immediately linked to the wonderful atmosphere at her Standl. Striped canvasses, comfortable seating with a view into the bakery and the hustle and bustle of the Viktualienmarkt.

Buying Decisions Shape Supermarket Offers. Those can Shape Landscapes

Doing something by hand can change a lot. Buying something handmade out of conviction can do the same. It changes – or has already changed – the way we think. Especially when it comes to our food. What do we buy? Who made it? What can we perhaps grow ourselves? How do our actions and decisions change, first ourselves, then our purchases, then the landscape?

The Revival of Sourdough — Sparking new Thoughts on Agriculture

Every sourdough – that culture of lactic acid bacteria and yeast in a mixture of flour and water – is unique, like a fingerprint, because in every region there are individual bacteria in the air that give each loaf its very own flavour. One person who knows more about the infinite variety of sourdough cultures than most – whose culture is culture, so to speak – is the Belgian Karl De Smedt, keeper and archivist of Europe’s only sourdough library.
