Gluten Free Edinburgh review
Gluten Free Edinburgh kindly reviewed our Coconut Flat Breads and here is their verdict:
“While the choice of gluten free bread in the shops is wide, finding some that tastes really good and natural, is not quite too easy. We’ve been trying out the Calvin’s gluten free breads over a few days to see how they stack up.
They are like a cross between a flatbread and pitta, but are puffy and spongy. I found the best way to use them was to put my hand over the top and then slice with a sharp bread knife. I then packed them full of fillings. You can also toast them. Though my gluten-eating husband just tore them apart fresh and used them like a nan with his curry – also good!
The website says you can use them as burger buns, which would work really well, or just toasted with toppings. I rather enjoyed mine toasted and cut into soldiers with a boiled egg too.
The big test for me was the rucksack test: how would they survive being made into a sandwich in the morning, then wrapped in a beeswax wrap and bashed around in a rucksack till lunch time. Well, they did well, is the verdict! I had halved the bread and then sliced it across to make semi-circular sandwiches. I filled them with humous, salad and leftover roasted carrots – a good sandwich!
Give these a go, not only because they are tasty and versatile, but also because we all love to support someone who is going out of their way to create something new. Natural and without that usual taste of gluten free bread (what is that taste it all has?!), Calvin’s flatbreads are the tops.”
