Product Description

The Village Bakery Organic Rossisky Bread 800g

Rye - a deliciously dark and tangy Russian - inspired rye bread In Kostroma, on the Volga River, making real Russian Sourdough is considered an art form and talking about it is as important as eating it. And it is easy to see why. How do you turn rye flour, water and sea salt into deliciously tangy bread? In the case of Rossisky, it comes down to doing as little as possible. We use the finest ingredients and a sourdough inspired by the bakers of Kostroma, which we leave a full 24 hours to ferment. The rest is down to patience, Mother Nature and a few hundred years of Russian expertise

Trust The Village Bakery.
Who else would spend over thirty years making organic bread without any of the additives other bakers say are essential? Who else would run their ovens on renewable energy or give their bread nearly a day to rise - allowing enough time to make your bread easier to digest and full of flavour. People said we were mad. But which is crazier: to lace your bread with stuff that isn't food as people understand the word, or to use only basic ingredients that our bodies recognise? We don't think it's mad to have a healthy respect for people and planet. All our flour comes from farmers who work with nature to produce vital crops from fertile soil. If you like your bread and it likes you, maybe it's because from grain to loaf, nobody has cut corners. So what's in it for you? A good eat we hope. And our assurance that we haven't added anything you wouldn't think of as food. Except a whole lot of time. Trust the Village Bakery!
Good bread, good taste... simple. There's a very good reason why our bread is tastier than most... from grain to loaf, we refuse to cut corners. We start with the best natural ingredients, add a little water, and let our doughs rise slowly (because, as any baker worth their dough will tell you, time equals flavour). The product of all this patience is bread with a unique rounded taste. So if you want wholesome, natural bread made with nothing more than time, patience and an uncompromising attention to detail, trust The Village Bakery.

Top quality Rye bread at low cost

Our family is coming from Russia and Austria, both countries where rye bread is staple food. The Village Bakery rye bread is just as we know it at home and beats every rye bread we've tried in the UK for simplicity, taste, quality and definitely price. Rye bread has a much higher mineral content, incl. iron than wheat bread, so it's also a healthier option. Most rye breads we've seen cost at least twice as much. So far, everyone we have introduced to this bread has loved it too. If you are reading this and never had one - definitely worth a try, you'll likely end up adding it to your weekly shopping!

Nice but salty

I really enjoyed this rye bread with avocado on top. Lovely quality product, very dense and delicious. My only negative comment would be that I found it a little too salty.

As real Russian

I ate original Russian Kostroma rye bread from the best bakery shop in Moscow, the bread appreciated by a late Prof.Tolstoy, one of the grandsons of the great Leo, and this one is not worse - or I forgot the taste of the first one. I love it simply with unsalted butter or soft Central/Eastern European cheese, tvorog, and some chives or chopped green parts of spring onions. But I will be a bitch and will check how original and organic it is - I'll try to make from a stale pieces an original Russian bread kvass, a kind of a soft drink, or Polish beetroot kvass for traditional red borsch. I'll say you after the experiments how real the bread is.

Really very good bread !

This top quality bread is full of flavour and lasts. It's true that rye doesn't leave you as bloated. Great product
