With roots dating back to Ottoman Era, the paper-thin pastry dough known as Phyllo is a still a cornerstone of Greek, Turkish, Arab and Balkan cuisine today. Derived from the Greek word for “leaf,” phyllo (or fillo and filo) is a versatile delicate dough that lends itself to both traditional and modern preparations. Athens Phyllo will provide perfect pastry layers for traditional Greek savory pies like Spanakopita (spinach and cheese) and Tiropita (cheese and egg). Our light flaky dough will add wonderful texture to homemade baklava and galaktoboureko. At Athens, we’ve taken the time-consuming work out of making phyllo from scratch to help free up your culinary inspiration! For a sophisticated take on baked brie, layer with fig jam or honey, wrap in phyllo and bake until the pastry is golden brown. For an elegant and delicious entrée ready in less than 25 minutes, fill our phyllo with salmon, fresh spinach, diced onion, herbs and spices and a squeeze of lemon. With no trans fat, saturated fat or cholesterol, our phyllo is also low in calories. Use it as a healthier alternative to classic pastry doughs for strudels or other pie preparations. Phyllo can be rolled, layered, folded, ruffled or stuffed with the fillings of your choice. Once you start working with Athens Phyllo, you will find the only limit to its versatility is your culinary imagination.
