Bakery 88, Dali, Yunnan, China

KarineBakery 88 in Dali in China’s Yunnan province is possibly the biggest jewel Leibspeise encountered so far throughout its travels. Not only because you can get the freshest bakery products with a strong emphasis on organic local ingredients, but mainly because its founder and ‘Mom of all’ Karine has such a passion for her baking hobby and is keen to train young local women both in baking / cooking, but also in English and general life skills. Karine has lived and worked in China since the mid 80s and came to Dali first in 92. She and her husband immediately fell in love with Dali’s relaxed atmosphere and started Bakery 88 in 2007. Since then, the Bakery 88 family grew to 8 people.

First thing you encounter when entering the shop, is a display of really deliciously looking cake. Traditional German cheese cake, chocolate cake, chestnut-pear cake and their ‘Hoernchen’ are bestsellers. Leibspeise’s test of a cheese cake didn’t leave any doubts why. On top of a variety of ‘belegte Broetchen’, the bakery also sells local cheese and organic honey and jam. Surprisingly, 80% of Karine’s clients are Chinese who buy her products because it’s healthy (and obviously tasty).

In winter time when the climate allows for some serious baking and cooking sessions, Karine holds baking and cooking workshops for local women in her bakery. Check out Karine’s personal food blog to get a feel of what’s happening there. Leibspeise loved Karine’s passion for her business, her can do attitude and especially her social thrive to improve lifes of local women.

    You know the majority don’t seriously realize the benefits of running a blog. Or even just just how much effort that goes into setting up a blog page. Honestly operating a blog is generally alot of fun as well as a great way to cultivate your brand or even online business.

    I simply hoped to take a couple of minutes and inform you that
    I really liked the article. I seriously don’t think most people know the level of energy that goes into developing a blog site. I realize that this is sort of random but it really bugs me sometimes. Nonetheless nice article.
