Maybe it’s the Nordic influenced area where I grew up, Ballard in Seattle, but Rye bread and Salmon always seemed appropriate for celebrating the Solstice in June.
I love bread recipes that are foolproof and easy to make, like this one for rye bread. It is basically a bread made with some rye flour and cocoa and molasses added. It has the right amount of liquid and yeast to be able to raise in the refrigerator with minimal kneading.
This is one of the breads we discovered while traveling and recreated when we got back home. We researched the science and techniques behind the recipe and used tips from exceptional chefs. Then we used the best ingredients we could find to create this recipe. For more ideas, see our other posts about recipes inspired by travel.
