Season Thirteen, Spring/Summer 2011
Borek, Boureka, Burek, Brik, Spanakopita
This week on Kitchen Caravan, we celebrate Spring with some Mediterranean flaky pastries. Bourek, Burek, Borek- they are all variations on the flaky pastry layered with cheese, spinach, and sometimes meat fillings that are so popular in the lands of the former Ottoman Empire. You can fill them with the fresh, invigorating greens of Spring, for a new take on a "Spring" roll. We encourage you to be creative and find your own favorite fillings.
