Wednesday, September 29th, 2021


We’ve had some good news.

Our Seeds & Black Pepper Crispbreads have ben given ANOTHER Great Taste Gold Star … 2013, 2018 and now 2021!

We make these artisan crispbreads by hand in our Somerset bakery with nutty-tasting chickpea flour and buttermilk. Topped with black pepper, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, golden linseed and nigella seeds - they really are delicious.

Seaweed celebration time!

Tuesday, September 7th, 2021


Check out Isle Martin - off Ullapool - which is hosting an inaugural Seaweed Festival this week. We buy seaweed from Scotland for our tasty Seaweed & Sesame Chickpea Crispbread.


We use the following seaweed in our Seaweed & Sesame Chickpea Crispbreads:

Palmaria Palmata - DULSE,

Laminaria Digitata - OARWEED,

And we also use NORI.

We are fans of seaweed and we wish Isle Martin was a little closer to us!

Turmeric triumph

Monday, August 9th, 2021


Why did we choose turmeric as an ingredient in our Chickpea, Turmeric & Nigella Seed crackers?

Well - it gives our crackers a beautiful colour for starters but, of course, there is more to it than that…

Turmeric comes from the turmeric plant and is a common spice in many Asian dishes. You will recognise turmeric as a main spice in curry for example.

Turmeric has a warm, bitter taste and, as well as curry, is often used to flavor mustards, butters and even cheeses.

The root of turmeric is also used widely to make medicine as it contains a chemical called curcumin. It’s considered helpful for controlling inflammation. It’s a folk remedy and a popular one at that.

We chose it because its taste complements the flavour of chickpea and it travels well with butter cheese and other toppings. Let us know what you think.

Two by two!

Raising awareness of diabetes risk

Tuesday, June 15th, 2021


We’re interested in healthy eating - because it’s good for you as well as tasting good. So we welcome awareness-raising weeks like Diabetes Week which is happening now. People from across the UK are coming together to share their experiences of living with diabetes and raise awareness of what it is like to live with the condition.

The theme of Diabetes UK’s Diabetes Week (which runs until 20 June) is #DiabetesStories

Diabetes affects 4.9 million people in the UK, including almost a million people living with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes. If not managed well, all types of diabetes can lead to devastating complications, including sight loss, amputation, kidney failure and stroke. There is currently no known cure for any type of diabetes.

Chris Askew OBE, Chief Executive at Diabetes UK, said: “We’ll be celebrating the incredible diabetes community by sharing stories of people with diabetes and what the last year has been like for them.”

Diabetes UK’s free online Know Your Risk tool helps individuals measure their risk of type 2 diabetes, while you can find out more about the signs and symptoms of diabetes here.
