Phyllo Pies For Sale!

This is one of the most exciting moments since this blog first began back in May of 2007. After many hours of learning the craft of making homemade phyllo, I am confident enough to be able to make it on my own with consistency and some degree of speed. I am indebted to y Mother who taught me this craft, art, technique which is not made by hand less and less as the years march on.

I am now selling Spanakopita (spinach and cheese), Tyropita (cheese) pitas, all made with hand-made, opened/stretched phyllo. The Spanakopita’s filling is made of spinach, Feta and ricotta cheeses, eggs, salt, pepper, scallions and fresh dill.

The Tyropita contains Feta and ricotta cheeses, eggs, salt and pepper and it is available in both rectangular and round trays. The round Tyropita is what us northern Greeks call a Boureki and it’s also called a Strifti pita. In English i is known as a spiral pie.

A new addition to my phyllo pie roster are Pastourmadopita. This special pie contains slices of Pastourma, tomatoes, Bechamel and Kefalograviera cheese.IMG_7647

I am also offering a sweet Bougatsa…a Greek breakfast and snack offering. Adults and kids will indulge in Bougatsa in the morning be it in the store where it’s made or taken “paketo” with them. My Bougatsa is made just like in Greece with hand-made phyllo, semolina cream filling and baked until golden and flaky. All you have to is cut it into fork-sized pieces, sprinkle with icing sugar and cinnamon and enjoy with a Greek coffee, frappe or chocolate milk!

 

The large pies are 16″ X 11″ and sell for $50.00 and the small pies are 11″ X 8″ and sell for $35.00. The Spiral pies come in large and small sizes and again, $50 and $35 respectively. They are made and frozen in foil pans and you may either that overnight in the fridge before baking or bake from frozen (takes longer to bake).

These phyllo pies are great for entertaining, serve as part of a light lunch or dinner with a salad or soup and they always go over well at parties (they are the first to go).

Orders may be placed my emailing me at truenorth67 AT gmail.com, pick-up only (for now). Cash and paypal are accepted (firm).

      I learned how to make phyllo from my yia yia when I was a young boy. It is not that hard, just takes effort. But re these products, where I live there are two companies making and selling similar items via continental delicatessens. So Peter, expand. Franchise. You have the talent needed

      • Emmanuel says:

        If we can purchase Ouzo in Melbourne Australia from Greece,and prepacked sweets from Turkey,surely there must be a way to purchase all those goodies from you downunder,
        With one of the largest population of Greek (origin) migrants,I hope the marketing gurus in your department come up with something to please us.I do not want to know what a pastry product is made up of ,i want to taste it,smell it,enjoy it.
        Ante re pedia kanete kati.
        Bye,Manos

    bravo – kales douleies!

  19. […] busy of late with a lot of my time in the kitchen being devoted to making phyllo pastry by hand and selling these creations to many here in Toronto. Often times I’ve found myself without an iota of an idea about what […]

  20. Mary Dailey says:

    You mean someone still makes their own phyllo???? My grandmother did before the commercial phyllo came out. She would put a clean sheet on the bed and she had a broomstick she used only for that purpose and started rolling it out until you could read a newspaper through it. Then, she had to cut into 13 X 9 pieces. No wonder the lovely Greek ladies only served you a few pieces of their delectable pastries. I don’t ever remember any of them putting down a big platter of them because they would disappear too fast after all their hard work. I don’t make my own phyllo and it still takes a very long time to make the Greek goodies, but it’s all worth it.

  21. Manos says:

    Dear team,we need those sweets down under in Australia ,Melbourne please.Yummy!

  22. Katina Pagourtzis says:
