We eat too many crackers because cheese is life, and cheese requires crackers. We based this on a recipe from here.


  • 200g wholegrain wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50g cold butter, chopped into cubes
  • Salt


  1. Heat oven to 180C. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Combine the flour, baking powder, butter and ½ tsp of salt. Add 4 tbsp water and knead together. If it still feels dry, add more water until you have a soft but not sticky dough.
  2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle and as thin as possible. Brush a little water over the surface of the dough, scatter 1 tsp salt over and press in lightly. Prick the dough all over with a fork, then cut into squares. Place on the trays and bake for 10-15 mins until the crackers start to turn golden. Transfer to a wire rack and leave until cool. Serve with brie, fig jam and wine!
