“Gion, Kyoto Boloniya” Danish bread called legendary bread


What is the charm of the original Danish bread of “Gion, Kyoto Boloniya”?

Bolognian Danish bread is the finest bread that has been carefully crafted one by one, using the finest original blended flour, carefully selected ingredients, and handmade by the craftsmen from preparation to baking. The surface has a crispy texture. But inside is moist and sweet. We continue to stick to our unique manufacturing methods and ingredients, and have been completed under the concept of “not sweeter than cake and sweeter than bread” for over thirty years.

Carefully selected ingredients and handcrafted fine bread from skilled craftsmen..

I’m drooling when I remember it.

What is Danish bread

I searched the internet, but there were few articles about Danish bread and it was on another bakery’s homepage.

Danish bread is a bread that was developed by Kyoto bakers over 30 years ago, thinking that “the taste of croissants can be made into bread”. Folded margarine and dough are layered in layers like pie dough. The big difference is that the bread is put into a baking mold, so it becomes a rectangle.

From the homepage of MIYABI BAKERY 1985

It is like a croissant in the form of bread.

I actually tried Danish bread, and it tasted sweet and I felt it was like bread.
