I'm not sure what makes this bakery "Automatic".
This blog is such a learning experience for me. I'm not usually one to just throw info out there without delving into it a bit first (ok, ok, no doubt I have been guilty at times). I was going to suggest that perhaps the windmill plastered above the building was the reason it was called "automatic". You know, a little electricity to fire up those ovens. Well, little did I know, until I Googled windmill...
"The main use is for a grinding mill powered by the wind, reducing a solid or coarse substance into pulp or minute grains, by crushing, grinding, or pressing"
Well, shut my mouth. I've always equated windmills with energy and did not know that they are also used to pulverize grain. (Obviously, I wasn't the most studious of students.) Hmm, grain, baked goods...I'm seeing a connection here. So maybe the windmill is well placed, after all. Still not so sure about the automatic part, though.
