Two Bakers Making Good with Outstanding Bread

The Öfferl steam bakery in Gaubitsch is surrounded by the wine cellar lanes so typical of the Weinviertel region of Lower Austria. Two headstrong men have made a name for themselves there: Georg Öfferl and Lukas Uhl. They took something about to be relegated to history and revived it into what is again today: a flourishing family bakery.
