Barbari Bread

Barbari bread is a type of flatbread from Iran. Thankfully I only had to travel to the world food store to get mine :)

The bread is very long, approx. 22 inches - flat and dimpled and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

This bread cost $2.49.

I enjoy most kinds of flatbread and I was not disappointed with the barbari. We ate some plain - but it was best in this manner:

Mix together a small amount of feta cheese, olive oil, minced garlic and some herbs. I sprayed on a bit of cooking spray, sprinkled on some coarse salt and then spread the mixture on the bread and bakeed at about 400 degrees for about 10 min. I also had some with just a sprinkling of coarse salt - and both ways it was tasty.

The children enjoyed it too - so looks like this will be on the shopping list again.

Bread is so universal. Every culture has their own take on it, but we all have something bread, or bread-like.

This bread looks like my swedish bread without the sesame seeds. My grandfather made a special rolling pin to make the "dimples" in the bread. I use it on special occasions.

I *love* flatbreads. Definitely my favorite, though I'll have to try this one.
