The war in eastern Ukraine between Russian backed rebels and the Ukrainian army has killed more than 10,000 people over four years, and peace remains a distant prospect. Despite the violence and poverty though, civilians in the war zone try to live as normal a life as possible. In the frontline town of Marinka, a new bakery has opened which brings some comfort and sustenance to war weary locals

The soldiers say the smell of fresh bread reminds them of their childhood and peace time and helps lift their mood.

Borodinski recipe

Lily McCann has published an excellent recipe for a Borodinski loaf which I would like to share with you. We have made some Borodinski-inspired loaves as part of our rye production on a Thursday. But it seems to me that this is a superior recipe. Recommended for those who like rye bread and the flavours of Eastern Europe.Borodinski true loaf
I hope you enjoy it.
