I also recommend the School of Artisan Food, based in the UK, that has fantastic bakery courses!

http://www.schoolofartisanfood.org/default.aspx

But all this training can be had in San Francisco as well. If I had money to spend, like you obviously do, I'd invest it in courses at SFBI

And not leave the US at all.

The long and the short of it: invest in technique, not in "eating your way around Europe": that will not teach you what you need to know.

From one baker to another.

Ditsch is a really crappy bakery chain. On a level with Back Factory, if not lower. Emergency food only. Most neighborhoods have real bakers, making real bread. Look at farmers' markets for some of the best breads.

Berliners are jelly donuts in only certain parts of Germany. They have different names depending on where you are: Kreppl, Pfannkuchen, Krapfen, for example.

Frikadelle is a mix of ground beef, pork, onions, egg, and some spices, (but not spicy)

Döner are found in every city, even smaller towns.

I find great hamburgers in Frankfurt, though the search for them is half the fun. A hamburger is a hamburger.

Something is wrong with Dunkin Donuts over here. They just don't taste right. Yeah, they had lines the first few days they were open in Frankfurt, but not anymore. German bakeries are making better tasting donuts.

So Bamburger, despite the name, isn't really a burger but named after a place. I have never heard of it. I'll definitely try that.

Yes, it's named after the city of Bamburg.


No. The city is called BambErg, so it is Bamberger.
