Turkish Bread

Turkish Bread Quicke's Cheese


  • 500g plain flour
  • 1 sachet of dry yeast (7g)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 375ml warm water
  • Olive oil to grease the bowl for rising
  • 2 tspn sesame seeds
  • 1 tspn nigella seeds (If you have them)
  • ½ tspn sea salt flakes
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 230 degrees celsius
  2. Combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the water, mix it through with a wooden spoon, then use your hands to bring together in the bowl
  3. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 15 minutes, or until smooth and elastic (if you're using a mixer with a dough hook, this should only take ½ the time to knead)
  4. Brush a bowl with olive oil, add the dough to the bowl and lightly cover in olive oil. Cling film the bowl and leave to rest in a warm place for around 1 hour, or until the dough has doubled in size
  5. Place a baking tray in the heated oven and turn the dough out onto floured surface
  6. Cut the dough in half, flatten slightly and stretch out into rectangle shape no longer than your baking tray. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside for 15 minutes in the same warm place
  7. With a floured small stick, prick holes through each dough. Combine the egg yolk and olive oil and brush the dough, before sprinkling on the seeds and sea salt
  8. Remove the hot oven tray from the oven and place 1 bread dough on it. Bake in the oven for around 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown
  9. Once cooked place on a cooling rack and repeat with the next loaf

  • Salt and pepper
  • Red wine vinegar


  1. Cut up the peppers and tomatoes and place into a bowl, add the thyme almonds and garlic cloves, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper
  2. Turn the bowl out onto an oven tray and roast at 200 degrees celcius until the peppers are nice and charred (don’t worry if you have a few burnt bits)
  3. In another bowl, add the old bread and vinegar
  4. Once the pepper mix has cooled, add it to a mixer with the bread and vinegar and puree together
