Native Americans were one of the first peoples to come up with a form of wrap made from corn meal. Tortillas you eat to this day are also still made in a similar way to the first ones made by Indigenous Americans. They never specifically used them as wraps as we do today but they did use them in most meals and would share this with the explorers that arrived in the New World all those years ago. Today we can find wraps made called tortillas, pitas and Naan bread from the Middle East. We have now made them into pockets that you fill with your favorite ingredients. Wraps provide a chance to experiment with many unique flavors and the options are only limited to the cooks imagination.
