When Wolfgang Büchler came to Washington from Heidelberg, Germany, he couldn't speak a word of English and never imagined he would be designing cakes for Presidents, Ambassadors and so many of the wonderful people living in the DC area.
Although Wolfgang and his wife Carla have been innovating since 1975, success has not come easy. When they brought Crusty, European-style breads made with imported flour to Washington in the 1970's, customers returned the breads, thinking they were stale. "I gave them their money back," said Wolfgang. "Today, Washington demands our authentic breads, and we are constantly developing new recipes to meet their tastes."
