Traditional Greek Phyllo dough

This is a treasured recipe among the Greek ladies! Traditional Greek Phyllo dough a well-kept secret because every region of Greece has their own way of making it and they are so proud!

It’s a gift to be able to master the art and it requires time and work, something that the new generation of homemakers are not willing to invest.

The only thing we want is for the making of  Phyllo to continue to exist and to be passed on to the new crop of foodies, and not get lost and become a memory like so many other things have.

So, I would like to encourage you to try and make it at least once and you will realize how easy it is!

Also, mothers, try and teach your daughters and sons how to make it, this way it will survive the test of time!

Start young before they say “I don’t like to cook”

We want them to get involved and learn from your chest of treasured recipes, the ones you know by heart, the ones that there is no recipe, just a little bit of this and a little bit of that!And that is how mothers pass down their recipes to girls of the family!

Traditional Greek Phyllo is delicious, nothing compares!

You will need.

Baklava with chocolate

Baklava, A timeless beauty

Excerpt from the book “Take the Taste of Greece with you” by Litsa Bolontzakis

A recipe with a rich past that only gets better with time…One of my favorite desserts, it can be enjoyed in many different ways, with chocolate, or different nuts like pistachios, with ice-cream or not…

Baklava by Litsa!

Easy to make and it can last with no refrigeration for a few days.

I mean how can you go wrong with Phyllo, nuts, and honey…It’s a marriage made in heaven, and that is why it has staying power…

Ok, I agree that Phyllo is very capricious, but you take the control and you be the boss, make sure you have all your ingredients ready and waiting, and work fast because Phyllo likes to dry up and when that happens it crumbles and you can’t work with it…
