Back in the day Stokies would pass half a dozen Oatcake Shops to buy from their favourite place. It's all about the texture, flavour "and 'em not being being too thick, duck". In homage to High Lane, Tunstall I now make these in exile at home in the Welsh hills on a cast iron planc usually used for Welsh Cakes.
I have tried various recipes for wraps and this is by far the best. The dough is easy to work with and wraps are made quickly with few ingredients. My children absolutely love them which speaks volumes. I tried this recipe as my daughter cannot eat normal wheat wraps as she is intolerant. These wraps have been a hit!
This recipe makes a delicious flatbread, perfect for dishes of grilled meats and salads such as the Greek Gyros, Middle-Eastern Shawarma or even with a bowl of chilli. They are a firm family favourite and pretty fail-safe
A rustic bread with a pretty colour, crispy crust and distinctive flavour which works well with a variety of Shipton Mill flours. Quick and easy to prepare.
Beetroot tops are often thrown away, which is a great shame as they taste delicious, especially in spring. Their flavour is sweet and earthy, reminiscent of chard. They use beet tops a lot in the Caucasus. This recipe is inspired by Ossetian pies. Ossetians are highlanders just North of Georgia. These pies are probably as old as the hills because traditionally three are served and each signifies a different element - earth, water and fire. I fell in love with their story, and with their outstanding flavour. They are normally brushed with melted butter as they come out of the oven, but I love to go one step further and smother them in beurre noisette. Try it, it will be the best thing you will eat this spring.
These are a traditional Indian bread, perfect with Chilli Paneer or Dal. A great alternative to rice. This recipe is gluten free. It taste great and is a nice light texture, though it doesn't always puff as much a wheat Puri.
Fabulously tasty lunch time treat (or any time you like!). White bread rolled thin and topped with tomato purée, red onions , mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. A taste explosion. Great with salad leaves and tomatoes etc.
Truly the ancestor of pizza, this is the actual “loaves and fishes”, the manner in which the ancient staple foods of the Mediterranean, wheat bread salted fish and olives/olive oil were consumed… and what better way to eat them!
