Before moving to USA from Europe I was fortunate to travel a lot throughout most of Europe, Western Asia and Northern Africa. I loved to walk down to streets of the cities I have visited , sampling some good munchies comparing them to a food my mother made for me at home.:)

So, I decided to start this topic that members could post pictures of theirs favorite ethnic dishes they like to eat.

Today I made Bourekah with homemade Phylo dough , hamburger meat, potatoes,onions and some good spices.

Here how it started

Looks wonderful Ela, I'd love to have a peepsee at your Phylo dough recipe if it isn't one of those family secret recipes. Never had much success with phylo dough....
This Christmas, shop LOCAL, buy 'MADE IN AMERICA' (or goods made in your own country) and buy from SMALL INDEPENDENT MERCHANTS.

Thanks,rooze. There is no family secret recipe.:) It is all in thechnique and it takes some time to learn how to work with this type of dough. Any time you need help with it or have any questions I'm only PM away. :) First time I made these I had more flour on me and floor than on work area. Posted Image

Thanks,Scov....now Im blushing here Posted ImageAnd YES you could just cross the border and visit one of the Chinese restaurants in,maybe Vancouver, have something interesting there, than make it at home and post it here. Just think about it that we are here to learn about different food ingredients, techniques, flavors, meat cuts, herbs etc. so lets have a fun sharing our World cooking knowledge on this Forum. :)

Thanks JayT. Before moving to USA I was familiar to European and Middle East cuisine but not so much to Asian , Caribbean, Cajun etc. I must say that new culinary adventures helped me out to experiment with different flavors adding some new twist to my love for cooking.

HMMM, Emphasis on the MMMMMMMM part!
I don't know if I should look at stuff like this when I'm out in the middle of the deep blue sea.... it flat out causes spasms of a jealous mouth and stomach!
The way I see it- First course TB's Queso concoction with the obligatory Shiner Boch, washed down with Jay's Pho, then a full on frontal assault with Ela's
Phyllo food Bombs...and of course more Shiner!

Good idea for a thread! It was a "verbal" recipe for jerked pork(which I readily admit to covertly recording on a nearby paper towel ;)!) brought back from Jamaica with a few smuggled Scotch Bonnets, that started my neverending pang for all things hot and spicy.

I wanted to scarf down my screen...REALLY!
Yes, I will post a few retorts here when I'm back on some dirt....
cheers all-

Ela, your posts are an inspirations for someone I know to make some fresh bread, which I was privileged to take home a piece of, and it was DELICIOUS.... so THANK YOU for the inspirations to someone else so we could enjoy some fresh bread based on your baking posts.
