1 40 years are a long time, even in a historical context. The history of the Auguszt family reaches back exactly this long, four generations. The confectionery expertise gathered and perfected by the family is a heritage that we consider our most important task to nurture in the present. Past successes and failures ripened 140 years of philosophy: our commitment to quality confectionery.
Besides keeping traditions, we lay great emphasis on improving our knowledge, taking new tracks, experimenting with new methods and ingredients and yet constantly insisting on the highest quality expectations. We can only see our future as an extension of our past and we could never imagine stronger basis for it than our own heritage.
The secret behind the Auguszt confectionery lies in the knowledge accumulated by five generations of pastry cooks, in the professional handling, in the precise proportions and in the outstanding quality of the ingredients. Working in the kitchen from an early age, the youngest members of the Auguszt family can acquire first hand knowledge of the finesse of confectionery. Therefore, the profession passed over from generation to generation results in dedicated confectioners brought up in the most inspiring environment. When it comes to preserving ancient recipes and making traditional confectionery, handcraft, attention to details and fine circumstances such as the temperature of ingredients play a major part in the quality of the final product.
Traditional recipes can be adjusted to today's taste and to changing culinary habits, while perfectly preserving their original flavour.
Guests entering our confectionery often ask us to reveal the secret of our products' refined taste. Each time we can only reply that the essence of our confectioneries' recipes lies in the long years of skilled pastry work and the careful selection of ingredients. The basis of the success of our confectionery is keeping this secret - the craftsmanship of the profession - alive.
Besides our confectioneries you can discover the history of the Auguszt family dating back to more than 140 years.
