Ed Smith Gilda Spread Recipe

We’ve teamed up with Food Writer and Creator of award-winning food blog Rocket & Squash, Ed Smith to create a recipe to pair perfectly with our Original Sourdough Crispbreads. 


“These are genuinely amazing: basically a Gilda spread, on a Peter’s Yard sourdough crispbread. Ideal as a quick lunch, or for mid-afternoon and late night snacking.

You could also use the smaller Peter’s Yard crackers as a base and enjoy the topping canapé style.

Whichever, give this a go – it’s so good.”


Serves 2 (makes 4 x crispbreads)

100g marinated olives (those stuffed with chilli and garlic are a good option)
1 scant tbsp Greek yoghurt
1 scant tbsp full fat creme fraiche
4 Peter’s Yard sourdough crispbreads
8 anchovies in oil
8 pickled cocktail onions, quartered
3 pickled chillies, sliced

Chop the olives very finely. It’ll take a minute or two, but is satisfying once done.

Combine the chopped olives in a bowl with the yoghurt and creme fraiche. Stir.

Then spread onto the crispbreads and top with anchovies, the quartered pickled onions and sliced chillies.

Then crunch away!
