Yoel first started training as a Pastry Chef, but soon realized that he was way more into bread, when asked what fascinated him so much about bread, he said: "For me, it is truly meditative. It is a science and art in the same time, and it trains your focus. So it’s like yoga but in a different way”

He was working in Bvlgari Hotel in Bali, when his manager encouraged him to apply for a position in Dubai, he got accepted and soon he was living and working from there. 

“I truly learned how to not be afraid of numbers, of big numbers, I learned how to cater to maybe 2000 people and they all eat bread that much! It was long hours and lots of stress and exhausting, but it worth the lesson. Then I moved back to Bali.”

Upon his return in Bali, Yoel started working in a small local bakery and while he was there, he was learning about sourdough on his own from books and youtube videos. He always had this dream of having his own bakery, and so when there was an empty space available next to his house, he took the opportunity to renovate it and from there he started BRAUD Artisan Bakery, baking sourdough breads and selling to cafes around Bali. 

Sprout Cafe in Canggu was one of BRAUD’s first customers and upon his meeting with Rob the owner, Rob said; “Finally somebody is doing this kind of bread here in Bali!”

Today, BRAUD has been expanding from the first year and caters more than 80 Cafes and Restaurants all over Bali every day.

“We have learned, and we keep learning every single thing in this wonderful industry. There are ups and downs, and of course we never say that “we are the best”, because “best” is relative to us. Again, it is a matter of taste and choice”.

Yoel is so excited to be teaching his first Sourdough Masterclass right here in Bali and hope one day he can collaborate with anyone that has the same interest.
