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!

Perfect rye bread!

Tasty, filling, and wholesome. Much better than the other popular rye bread which falls apart in the pack! Like others, I now slice and freeze mine on day of purchase, as it does go mouldy quickly in warm weather. I wish people would stop complaining about that - would you rather have your organic, healthy bread full of preservatives??

Best rye bread available

I've tried so many different ryes to avoid added yeast, but this is the best I have tried by a long way. it's definitely better slightly/fully toasted. I also slice mine and put it in the frezzer so that I can toast it as and when, cos I often don't get through the whole loaf before it begins to go off. i prefer it with eggs, houmous & avocado, or almond butter.

my favourite rye bread

This is the best supermarket rye bread around. I actually think it's nicer as toast. Soaks up the butter beautifully! I've not found it going mouldy too fast when kept in the bread bin & re-wrapped in grease proof or a paper bag.

Best Bread in the country!

I spent a year in Finland and grew accustomed to 100% Rye. I searched for 100% rye with no other added ingredients other than yeast and water, I was looking for ages and then came across this stuff and bought 4 of them and Im so glad I did. I will definitely be buying more!

I swear they're getting smaller...

I recently found out I was wheat intolerant, so I started buying this rye bread but lately I've noticed the loaf was a bit smaller than usual...either I picked up a different loaf or they've downsized slightly?
