See those chocolate cookies in the picture? Delicious! If I hadn’t been told, I never would have guessed they were made with rye flour. All I tasted was the chocolate.
When someone mentions rye, I usually think salami on rye bread. The end.
Not anymore. My taste buds have been awakened.
Enlightenment occurred at Standard Baking Co. on Commercial Street in Portland, where I was introduced to a rye I’d never met before.
