Börekitas: From Istanbul to London

Have you heard of Börekitas? If not, you're in for a treat! Borekitas are a delicious Sephardic pastry originally from Turkey. They're a flaky, crispy pastry that can be filled with various ingredients, like roasted eggplant and feta cheese. Börekitas are incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed anytime – for breakfast, as a snack, or even paired with a salad or soup for a light meal.

The recipe for Börekitas has been passed down from generation to generation within Sephardic Jewish families, with each family adding their unique touch. I was lucky to learn it from a wonderful grandmother named Madame Eti in Istanbul, Turkey. She graciously shared all her tips and tricks, ensuring that each Börekitas is baked to perfection, just like her mother taught her.
