Cooks Note

These crispbreads have numerous uses, here are just a few ideas:

- Break into thin shards for dipping into hummus or tsatziki. - Top with spreads such as pate or cream cheese, then garnish with salads. - Serve as an unusual accompaniment to soups. - Have as an alternative to the usual crackers next to the cheeseboard, with your favourite pickles. - Serve in smaller pieces as simple nibbles just as they are.
