Fatayer bil Jibneh | Savory Cheese Hand Pies

 

Simply put, fatayer is pizza-like dough, rolled crispy thin or fluffy thick, and stuffed with filling; herbed cheese in this case.  Various adaptations of these savory hand pies can be found throughout the Levant, the South Caucasus, Southeast Europe (The Balkans), North Africa, Anatolia and surrounding regions.

Copy-Cat Manti | Phyllo Dough Roses with Yoghurt + Chili Oil

 

Manti is a type of dumpling made with unleavened pastry dough and filled with minced lamb or beef.  It can be prepared a number of ways, which I will cover in future posts.  This recipe for phyllo dough roses, or rosettes, is meant to mimic the experience of savoring manti without all the hustle and bustle of making it.  But why roses one might ask?  Because rolls are not pretty enough!

According to some researchers, manti first reached Cilician Armenia as a result of the cultural interaction between Armenians and Mongols during their alliance in the 13th century.  However, some researchers do not discount the possibility that manti may have originated in the Mid East and spread eastward to Korea and China through the Silk Road (source).
