From Turkey and the Balkans, burek is–for simplicity’s sake–a delicious savory pie, a filo pastry case filled with cheese, meat and vegetables.
It’s impossible to give one single recipe since countless variants exist. The pie is commonly made with filo but it is possible to find and make versions with different types of pastry dough. The filling changes according to where you eat it.
At Terra Madre we’ll present a Turkish version and a Bulgarian one, filled with eggs and cheese.
