Russian Rye (Столовый)

Stoloviy (Столовый, click to listen) is one of the most popular Russian rye breads. Its flour bill includes about 50% of rye flour and 50% of whole wheat flour, making it more nutritional in comparison with some other rye breads which include all purpose flour. Our Russian Rye closely follows the original recipe with a two-stage starter. Instead of yeast we use a natural sourdough starter to unleash the wonderful flavors of a traditional rye loaf. It takes two full days to make this bread, and it stays fresh for a week. Russian Rye is an extremely flexible bread; it's great by itself, toasted or not, it is delicious with a slice of cheese or smoked meat, you can rub it with garlic or even sprinkle with sugar!
