Join Rosehip + Rye, Karaway Bakery and the Real Bread Campaign for a season celebrating secale.
From 2 – 15 November 2020, rye lovers (and the rye curious) are invited to tuck into a virtual feast of the grain whose popularity continues in other parts of Europe and is once again rising in Britain.
Eastern European food explorers Rosehip + Rye, rye bread specialists Karaway Bakery and the Real Bread Campaign have joined forces to encourage people give rye some much-needed love and help put it back in its rightful place in many more bread bins across the land!
Join in by:
...and if you bake Real Bread for sale, why not add (or highlight) a rye loaf.

Despite rye being one of the main crops grown in the UK until the Middle Ages, and rye flour forming part of many sourdough loaves (before, during and beyond lockdown) it remains largely under-appreciated in modern day Britain.
Climate resilient, high in fibre, nutritious and delicious, rye is the heritage grain that’s now set to become a crop of the future. Still extremely popular in northern and eastern Europe, rye is set to go global, with the UN even considering making 2025 to be the International Year of Rye.
