The first time Great Food Club’s Northamptonshire correspondent Carmela Sereno Hayes visited the Replete Flatbreads stand at a local market she returned three times.
Carmela says: “What Iain Cowan [founder] doesn’t know about flatbreads isn’t worth knowing. They are delicious on their own but also make great sides for many dishes.”
Replete Flatbreads now attends a core of 10 farmers’ markets each month, interspersed with several festivals throughout the year. The range of flatbreads is up to around 12, all vegetarian, some vegan, plus a few gluten-free options. They include his original Indian kulcha filled with onion bhaji; a Greek pitta filled with spanakopita; a Spanish coca flatbread with patatas bravas; Georgian khatchapuri filled with cheese, caramelised onion and kidney beans; Italian flatbreads with pesto, and a wonderful stromboli filled with sun-dried tomato, picante peppers and garlic mushrooms. Iain uses gram flour to make gluten-free faina flatbreads.
Based in Wymington near Rushden, Replete Flatbreads was nominated for two categories in the Bedfordshire Food & Drink Awards in 2015: Best Farmers’ Market Stall and Independent Local Food Producer.
Replete Flatbreads are also available at Hornett Wholefoods in Midland Road, Wellingborough.
