The taste of freshly baked Borodino bread cannot be confused with anything else. For the first time this delicious bread replenished the shelves of Soviet bakeries in 1933 and to this day does not leave the shops of the CIS countries and our tables. Fragrant, slightly salty rye bread and characteristic caraway bitterness — how was this unique combination born?
History of appearance.
There are two most popular versions of how the miracle bread called “Borodinsky” was invented. The first one says that such bread was baked by the nuns of the Spaso-Borodino Monastery, which was built by the widow of General Tuchkov, who died in the Battle of Borodino. Hence the name of the monastery and the bread itself. The baking recipe was very similar to the classic one, but with its own characteristics in the form of spicy cumin. According to the second version, the recipe for the famous bread was brought from Italy by the chemist and composer Borodin. By the way, the modern recipe for this bread is over 100 years old! The recipe does not lose its relevance to this day.
