First, use your fingers and feel the weight and thickness of the cracker.

Then look closely at the color and texture. Are there seeds, or whole spices. Turn the cracker over. Is it the same on both sides. Hold it close to your nose and take a nice long smell to the point of being able to taste the cracker.

Now take a bite. Hear the crunch on your teeth then listen to the crunching in your head. Is it loud enough to catch someone else’s attention.

Now you have a mouthful of cracker. What does it taste like? Do you sense some acidity in your cheeks? Or spice on your tongue?

Repeat.

Now add cheese, and different types preserves, cured meats and smoked fish. Or not. Some are great on their own.

Most of all: Enjoy!

We come from the worlds of professional baking, restaurants, catering, home-cooking, and teaching. We believe in the local, organic and good farming movements. And by applying artisan bread traditions and using nutritionally rich heritage grains such as Red Fife wheat, spelt, rye and buckwheat we can showcase this simple idea in an approachable way. Named after our young daughter, Evelyn’s Crackers are simply handmade with local grains.
