Galatopita - Greek Milk Pie

It's difficult for everybody these days, being away from our loved ones, family & friends. We are missing the familiar tastes & smells of mum's cooking, so we try to recreate her recipes at home in lockdown.

One of our favourite comfort foods is Galatopita, "Gala" = milk / "Pita" = pie, and when you make this for yourself you will see why!

You can't beat silky, smooth and moorish semolina based custard baked in the oven.

Galatopita is delicious warm, but even better the next day.

Pastry? No, you don't have to use pastry, but you can line the baking dish with layers of filo pastry. We didn't have any pastry today, so this recipe is really convenient & always hits the spot. Be sure to coat the baking dish with a good layer of butter and sprinkling of fine semolina.

You can stick to the traditional flavours by adding some lemon or orange zest...or maybe add a bit of rosewater and sprinkle the top with crushed pistachios. The flavours are limited to your imagination!

The best bit is the caramelised top layer which is sooooo delicious!

We dust it with a generous layer of cinnamon before serving.

A Galatopita needs to be shared with those that you love, so make a big family size Galatopita. It cuts easily for serving.

Hit us up for the recipe...details below on how you can make your ISO-family lockdown time a delicious adventure!
