Here is the recipe for one of the most well known and most popular Greek desserts, Galaktoboureko, which is essentially a Greek Custard Pie! It is a very rich and decadent sweet. The creamy custard, the crunchy layers of filo pastry, together with the cinnamon and clove sugar syrup, all add to the richness of this Greek dessert.
The Hellenic Odyssey in Melbourne, Australia, recently hosted a Galaktoboureko making cooking class demonstration, where they baked both the semolina and the cornflour versions. They then asked the participants to vote on their favourite version. It was a majority vote for the semolina version, the traditional classic recipe and they’re sharing it with us today!
