The famous “Tollkötters Hausbrot” made in Münster, in the heart of Germany by Tollkötter, is a heavy-weight. These huge rounds of rye weigh rougly 8 lb, or 3.5 kg. Whenever I visit, I buy a pound of it. The tang of sourdough, the earthy flavor of rye meal and the maltiness of toasted rye flour are abundant in this thick-crusted loaf from heaven. It must be something in the air, that keeps me coming back to hearty rye bread made from home-grown grain, produced in the region where live.

The other breads they had on display looked nice, but the rustic baguette I bought was only beautiful on the outside. It turned out to be a terribly crafted bread made with bread improvers.
