Where to find good Estonian bread
The art of bread baking is experiencing a revival and quality handmade bread can be found in neighbourhood bakeries across Estonia. Just be careful not to eat too much of this divine baked good before your main dish arrives! If you're still longing for the bread after your meal, some restaurants even sell you loaves to go.
Of course, you don't necessarily have to go out to a restaurant or bakery to get good rye bread. If you'd like to try baking your own loaf, the ingredients are simple: water, rye flour, salt, sugar, and leaven. Seeds, dried fruits, and nuts make tasty additions, though not necessary. Patience is required, as the process takes over 12 hours. You can find further instructions here. However, if you want to learn from a pro, you can try out a bread baking workshop. At the Bread Room, you can learn about bread baking firsthand with a homemade bread workshop.
