Recipe Description:

Although the word ‘filo’ is Greek, this impressively thin pastry originated in the kitchens of the Ottoman Empire, likely in the palaces of Istanbul— it requires a talented pastry chef with a large workspace to stretch out the dough to sufficient papery thinness. In Turkey, where filo is called ‘yufka’, borek is the name of many regional varieties of filo-crusted pie or tart, usually with savoury fillings. Squashes and pumpkins are often used for their chunky, savoury-sweet flexibility, while our inclusion of saffron makes sure that the borek releases a rich, regal aroma when that irresistibly flaky crust breaks open.
