VERY cool Peter. I admit to being completely intimidated by it :) Would be cool to watch you in action doing this. Sorry to see you had some difficulty with photo theft.

Beautiful work! Spanakopita is one of my favorite Greek dishes. Some day I'll follow in your footsteps and try to make my own phyllo (after I study yours).

2008-07-29T14:09:00.000-04:00

My Grandmother used to make Pita for every family holiday. I would make it with my Dad when he took over making it after Grandma passed away.
Both of them use to take the balls of dough and stack them on top of each other with crisco between each layer and then roll out very thin with a long skinny rolling pin, actually it was a broom handle Grandma cut to use as her pin.
The results were perfect! When Grandma got older she once used store bought phyllo dough and it was not as good.
I never knew the exact measurements that my Dad used for his dough, but your recipe gives me a jumping off spot to start experimenting to bring that family favorite back to the table now that my Dad is gone also.
Thanks!

2008-05-13T06:34:00.000-04:00

Oh my goodness, you actually MADE the phyllo?? How much patience does that need? I've honestly never made it before, never thought of it either (although I have made my own pate feuilletée + sablée) but never phyllo...I just buy it ready all the time. Shame on me after having read your post!

2008-03-07T12:50:00.000-05:00

Ola Peter,

I was thinking maybe... maybe you can make a instructional video on the part of making the pastry? Well, the whole recipe would be great! :-D

2008-02-13T00:52:00.000-05:00

Oh wow Peter! I'm in awe! I can't believe you made your own phyllo dough!!!

I love that shot of the dough over your arm and spread out. It's so amazingly thin.



Oh my gosh... that looks WONDERFUL, Peter!

Julie, welcome and yes, I'd love to have the recipe and get some info on the book of Jewish cooking from Greece.

Patricia, I'll wear a cape for ya!

Randi, you're too kind and thanks for being with my blog from the start and trying some recipes, best satisfaction for me.

Anna, you're right...I do need some more desserts in offerings...I'm working on it (including Diples).

Kevin, thanks...it gave me a big high to accomplish this.

Congratulations! You must have been so happy. The finished product looks divine, but I'm not brave enough to try.

2008-02-11T15:32:00.000-05:00

seriously peter, you have become my all time favorite food blogger. you blog every day or twice a day and you make both greek and greek influenced foods that i'm always excited to comment about and make. thanks for being the best. another mystery unraveled - this may beyond my comfort level for now, but i'm bookmarking this for an adventurous day.



Oh my! Oh my! That's just amazing!*cries*

2008-02-11T12:19:00.000-05:00

Oh my! Oh my! That's just amazing!

2008-02-11T06:24:00.000-05:00

Peter, I'm in absolute awe! First of all, congratulations on a spectacular job making what looks like a superb (and yummy!) phyllo! And second, thank you soooo much for such a wonderful photo demonstration! The next time my husband takes the kids out for the afternoon, I'm going to get stuck in and give this my best shot. I started reading your blg when I saw the photo of the stuffed grape leaves (yaprakes according to my Cookbook of the Jews of Greece). The recipe we use (also from the above cookbook) will make your mouth explode with flavor. Even my kids will fight me for them (well, all of them except my 6 year old who hates everything ;-). I'll be happy to give you the recipe if you are interested.

2008-02-11T04:12:00.000-05:00

Tablebread, I too saw the Bourdain episode in Greece, a must-see for anyone comtemplating visiting there.

Kalyn, this is Greece, embodied in phyllo.

Elly, you're right, homemade phyllo is much easier to handle.

Simona, with a few more "pitas" under my belt, I'll put on a clinic.

Pixie, my mom is my most valuable cooking resource.

Katerina, Thank you very much (Elvis voice)!

Pam, good for you having the courage to try it, it's intimidating but possible.

Maria, thank you for your support...it's just like the old days...Cretans and Makedones together!

Lisa, you'll have to come up the 401 for the tasting.

Laurie and Ivy, I asked my mom and she insists the little yeast used is very important for keeping the phyllo soft after it's baked (rather than crumble and crack).

Forkful, Greece exists beyond it's borders...another 10 million Greeks around the world.

Nuria, moms are difficult but yes, they best!

Lore, I like your attitude, by all means try it out.

Louise, I'm honoured that I've evoked all those emotions in you.

Heather, thank you SweetCheeks, I'm your biggest groupie! ;)

Anne Marie, you'll have to wait for the next batch.

Winedeb, I took the photos and had my mom pose for shots...she clsely supervised this masterpiece.

Sam, you have the skills the pull it off.

Aimee, this was "so metal"!

Allen, yes...baking in general mortifies me...my baking flops could equal my blog posts!

Sher, I'm honoured to be complemented by someone such as yourself who excels in the kitchen.
