Flatbread Queen inc. (Bolani)Concord , CA
To founder and owner Nazi Sidiq, food has always been deeply meaningful, and she views each meal she prepares as special. She grew up embracing the flavors, recipes and traditions of her homeland through her familys own cooking.
It was in that kitchen in Afghanistan that she learned how to make bolani flatbreads from her grandmother, a traditional dish in her culture. She remembers seeing her grandmother stuff each flatbread with potato and spices and cooking them in her clay oven. Little did she know that her grandmothers recipe would allow her to create her own business and succeed in her new home country, America.
What started as a little stand selling flatbreads, she expanded her offerings to include spreads and sauces that she recreated from her own familys history, rooted in tradition with simple, delicious flavors.
