Yesterday was All Saints, a day celebrated with a lot of local traditions.
One of them is the Allerheiligenstriezel, All Saints sweet bread – it’s a brioche with or without raisins, braided and decorated with sugar and almonds. It’s the traditional present of the godfather for his godchildren on this day – and best enjoyed fresh with butter!
