With a high quality standard, pastry chef Wolfgang von der Heide has developed his 150-year-old bakery from Willingen in the heart of Germany into a gourmet manufactory.
Stollen are at the heart of his production. Stollen is a bread-like cake and has been made in Germany for nearly 700 years. Stollen baking has a centuries-old tradition. Each family guards its own, handed-down recipe like it was gold. And the same is true for our “von der Heide” bakery family. Our Stollen is handmade – each Stollen is kneaded by hand 12 times. Heide buys from organic farmers in the region and personally knows the mill where his flour is milled.
