Feta Cheese and Chard Burekas
Brought to the country by Sephardic immigrants, Israelis have a serious love affair with the bureka – a savory stuffed pastry that originated in Turkey.
It doesn’t matter where you are – in a coffee shop, a market, a high-tech conference, a kindergarten party, or even a wedding, you’ll find burekas on the menu.
Traditionally filled with bulgarian cheese, spinach, potato, or meat, Israel’s burekas tend to use puff pastry, rather than the more traditional filo pastry used by the Turks.
They’re also surprisingly easy to make. Watch the video to find out how to make a particularly mouthwatering version of burekas stuffed with feta cheese and chard.
