All things phyllo!
November 13, 2022
Welcome to the cooking workshop of Slow Food Helsinki. Preservation of food culture, tradition and knowledge is in one of Slow Food’s scopes. During cold and dark seasons, we organise events which promotes food culture and knowledge exchange.
The first cooking workshop of this year will be of phyllo pastry from our instructor, food entrepreneur and blogger, Aslihan Oguz from Turkey.
Many associate phyllo mostly with “baklava”. However, there are many other uses for phyllo dough. Today, it is widely available in both Finnish and foreign markets, and phyllo is also vegan-friendly. So why don’t we discover more about what we can do with phyllo dough?
In the workshop, we will learn different techniques for shaping phyllo dough, such as layering, folding, cutting and rolling. They will also learn various types of fillings and cooking/baking.
At the beginning of the session, Aslihan will demonstrate a traditional pie using phyllo. Then, we will try different recipes and techniques with phyllo individually or in groups. In the second part of the workshop, we will make our own phyllo project! In the end, we will sit around the table and taste everything together.
Aslihan will also introduce us Turkish cuisine and Slow Food activities in Turkiye for discussion.
All recipes in the workshop will be vegetarian or vegan.
Date: 13 November, 2022
