Literally translated, the term “wraps” means wrapping or wrapping, but for me it is pure creativity…
Mexicans, Armenians, Middle Easterns, Greeks and Turks have been eating wraps since before 1900, generally they are flat bread (tortillas, lavash, pita).
In Italian regional cuisine we have the piadina a poor peasant bread that became street food in the Sixties, but we also use thin omelettes and leafy vegetables to contain or wrap tasty and imaginative fillings.
The most current kitchen as wraps uses vegan crepes prepared with legume flour, or raw version of raw vegetables or fruits and oil seeds.
They are preferably circular but also square or rectangular.
The wraps depending on the chosen ingredients and their quantity can represent: breakfast, a single dish, an appetizer, a snack, a gourmet bite or a dessert.
