In 1837, a man named August Zang moved from Vienna to Paris. Around 1838, he opened a Viennese bakery, introducing to Paris the use of the Austrian steam oven for baking bread. Some believe that his bakery was also the first to introduce Viennese style bread. While a classic french Baguette is made with poolish (pre-ferment) and the process takes few hours, the Baguette Viennoise is a quicker enriched bread. The dough is shaped like a baguette and that's where its name comes from. Before the last proofing of these beautiful baguettes, we will brush them twice and score them with many cuts. As a result, the baguettes will proof into the cuts and this is where it get its identical look. Don't expect it to be crusty and airy like a french baguette. Expect quite the opposite! It is a rich cloud that will draw a crowd. Guaranteed. YASSS.
