Thanks to my fellow foodie friend Signe Johansen, author of the incredibly popular 'Scandilicious' Blog, I have been introduced to something pretty wonderful... Delicious Artisanal crispbreads, so far removed from the usual supermarket crap.
Edinburgh-based Peter's Yard, make the most delicious and versatile crispbread I have had in a long time. Listed by The Times' Dan Lepard as one the the top 10 small bakeries in Britain, scoring the full 5 stars in the 'Observer Food Monthly' Scandinavian taste test and 'Gold' winner at the 2010 Great Taste Awards.
The large box of Swedish crispbread wheels 'for sharing' are wonderful and perfect for Tapas or Mezze style dining with friends but my favourites were the feather-light smaller crispbread rounds... perfect for my own indulgent snacking. To be authentic, I piled mine high with Swedish Gravadlax and mustard sauce but to Persianise things, I tried Feta with my own Pistachio pesto which was superb also. If you aren't anywhere near Edinburgh, don't despair because you can find Peter's Yard goodies at Wholefoods, Selfridges and also online directly from Edinbugh.
