A Syrian baker is expanding his operation in Edinburgh after a surge in demand for his traditional bread. Abdullah Razzouk, who fled Syria in 2009 before setting set up in Taza Bake in Scotland in August 2014, uses a 5000-year-old recipe for the Khobez bread. He is also introducing Manakesh, traditional Syrian pies and predicts a turnover could increase by 70 percent in 2018. The desire for healthier, stone baked breads, which reduces digestive bloating, and an increase of Syrian immigrants to Scotland is driving the demand.
