German Bakery, Dahab, Egypt

This is Ralph. He could be Leibspeise’s role model: the self-proclaimed “baker nomad” is a passionate baker from Munich and helped to set up bakeries around the globe for many years. Fortunately for all expats living on the Sinai in Egypt, he ended his nomadic life in 2006 to do his own thing: running a true German bakery in Dahab.

As the story goes, a German hotel owner missed her German bread so much that she looked for an adventurous baker. At that time, Ralph was thinking of a place to settle down and open up his own bakery, so the match was made. Some years later, Ralph now owns three bakery shops in Dahab and is about to open a German restaurant.

During our time in Dahab, Leibspeise made several repeat visits to his bakery because the bretzels, nut rolls, cakes, bread rolls and strudels were absolutely amazing. Part of this is due to the fact that Ralph meticulously takes care of the baking process, ingredients as well as training of staff. Further, he only has two machines in his kitchen (an oven and a kneading machine) and still does most by hand.

Ralph already has a strong following in town and even people from Sharm el Sheikh come to his shops for bread and sweets shopping. If you are on Sinai, Leibspeise highly recommends a visit.

The three German Bakeries can be found at Alf Leila’s B&B on the corner of Main Street and Al Fanar, one close to the Lighthouse, and one on the main street in Mashraba. n
