BORODINO bread (бородинский хлеб) is a bread-legend. Some love it, some do not, but everyone who speaks Russian knows about this bread. This black bread with sprinkles of coriander seed has a sweet-sour taste that is created by adding some malt, molasses, and coriander seed in a rye-wheat dough. It takes about 24 hours to produce a loaf but it is totally worth it! The 200th year history of the Borodino bread recipe is still unknown, and has a few different legends. Our favorite one is about a wife of a Russian soldier who was battling against the Napoleon army in 1812. She baked bread for her husband that would feel up a stomach and stay fresh for a long time while he was waiting for battle. We don’t have to tell you that BORODINO is our favorite, and the main reason we started the Journey in bread baking…
