Next week, as of 5th October, we will be introducing our winter menu with some exciting new additions to it. One of these new additions that we are really excited about is Spelt.
Spelt is an ancient grain which can be traced back 7000 years. A relative of wheat, it is higher in protein and was one of the first grains used to bake bread. Not unlike barley in texture, it is reputed to be helpful for those with wheat intolerances and IBS.
Wahaca is going to be using this organic british grown spelt from Sharpham Park which is grown and milled in small batches in the west country and is certified by the soil association. With it’s firm texture and nutty flavour, it makes a great addition to our salads.
We’ll be steaming ours with a little bit of vegetable stock and seasoning, and serving it up in our salads.
Please let us know what you think!
