German Bakeshop, New Delhi, India

March 15, 2010 at 5:59 pm Leave a comment

Since 2008 India’s capital, New Delhi, has its own true German Bakery: The German Bakeshop in Vasant Kunj. The bakery is the brain child of Helmut Schmidtmann who is a real entrepreneurial gypsy having worked in the field of engineering across Asia Pacific for many years. Currently he is Chairman of the ITA-Group, a company that helps German companies to set foot in Asian markets.

So why has he opened a bakery? It just happened to be that he had cravings for a true German Brezel and opening his own bakery was the only way to satisfy his longing. The German Bakeshop was set up with the help of a German baker master and offers a wide range of German breads and buns. There is a small shop in Vasant Kunj, but a lot of customers choose to pre-order online or over the phone.

Most of the ingredients are imported from Germany, but Mr. Schmidtmann is currently exploring options to source more ingredients from India. Interestingly, he considers a cooperation with Micha from the Brown Bread Bakery in Varanasi (read our article about this bakery here).

The German Bakeshop can be found in the ITA-Group building on Main Road in Vasant Kunj. Future plans are to add a Delicatessen section and bistro to the shop. Self-evidently, the sausages and meat products will be produced in-house as well.

Leibspeise sampled a deliciously tasting Apple Strudel while we were invited for lunch at Mr. Schmidtmann’s house. Judging from this we can only recommend to stop by the German bakeshop.
