Working with Phyllo

Instructor: Marc Levy of King Arthur Baking Co


Phyllo pita, is to the Greeks what pizza is to the Italians, pie is to the Americans, strudel to the Austrians, and tarts to the French. The art of making these thin sheets of flour and water known as phyllo (filo) is ancient, probably as old as bread-making itself.

In this class we will examine three products. Spanakopita, a staple at every Greek holiday. Herb scented spinach combined with feta and scallions makes this dish a family favorite. Kalitsounia is a Cretan, savory cheese hand pie that you can never make too much of. And, of course, Baklava - spiced walnuts and almonds layered together between flaky sheets of filo, and drenched with a honey/citrus syrup.

All registrations include a live zoom link to participate and interact in real time as well as formulas and process notes emailed ahead of the class.

I grew up having a rather large Greek family. It was my mother's side of the family, but my how they outnumbered my dad's side. Food was at the center of all gatherings. Whether it was a holiday or just a typical Tuesday at my Aunt Georgia’s. Also, my Uncle Steve had a phyllo (filo) shop. It was just around the corner from Yiayia’s house, and when I was young, we would go and visit. I’d walk out of that shop with a small amount of dough to take to Yiayia’s and I’d raid her pantry and put all kinds of stuff in it. It was tactile, it was messy, it was fun! This was probably my first baking moments. After high school, I attended Kendall College and earned my degree in baking and pastry. Following that, I worked in bakeries around Chicago, Minneapolis, and Athens, GA. Currently, I enthusiastically share the floor with some great bakers at King Arthur Baking Co.
