Frozen Kataifi Pastry - Antoniou

375 grams

Kataifi pastry is an uncooked wheat-based ‘string’ pastry. Its fine strands provide a unique texture, and its vermicelli-style nature makes it pliable into shapes only limited by your imagination.

Kataifi is pronounced with evenly stressed syllables: ka-ta-if-ee

It’s also surprisingly easy to use. Wrap, roll, mold, or crumb, its texture is very forgiving, with strands that are very easy to pull apart. Feel free to shape quite vigorously – this fluffs up the texture. You can then bake or fry it. Traditional Kataifi recipes include Greek sweets with nuts and syrups or honey, but you could also fill Kataifi nests with a range of sweet or savory fillings, Kataifi prawns, tempura with a difference, or use it as a pie topping.

Butter, oil, oil sprays and even egg whites can be used when cooking with Kataifi Pastry. 

Delivery:

Delivered frozen in long cream strands of thin pastry.


Defrosting: 

Allow Kataifi to thaw completely to room temperature in its packaging, before using - for a minimum of 4 hours. 

Kataifi Pastry Preparation:

The Kataifi will be in a tight bundle when removed from the packet. 

Open out the bundle and begin separating the strands to “fluff up” and loosen.

Pull away and rip handfuls of pastry as required.
