A Word About Phyllo

Phyllo [FEE-loh] Literally translated, the Greek word phyllo means “leaf.” Culinarily, it refers to tissue-thin layers of pastry dough used in various Greek and Near Eastern sweet and savory preparations, the best known being Baklava and Spanakopita. Phyllo (also spelled filo) is very similar to strudel dough. Packaged fresh and frozen phyllo dough is readily available.

Word About Mascarpone

Mascarpone [mah-skar-POH-nay] Hailing from Italy’s Lombardy region, mascarpone is a buttery-rich, double-cream to triple-cream, cow’s milk cheese. Technically it’s nit cheese rather curdled cream because citric or tartaric acid is used rather than a rennet. It’s ivory colored, soft and delicate and ranges in texture from that of light clotted cream to that of room temperature butter. It’s versatile enough to be blended with other flavors and is sometimes sold sweetened with fruit. This delicately flavored cheese needs little embellishment other than being topped with fruit and/or honey.
