Recipe fantasy to food reality.

Sunday, December 04, 2005


It was several years ago that I saw this recipe on Food Network, but only this week did we get ourselves together enough to make us some brika.
They're Tunisian pastries filled with mashed potatoes, tuna, capers, feta, cilantro, coriander, amongst other ingredients. It sounds like a bit of a train wreck, but I promise the results are delicious and the taste not overwhelming at all. The recipe Food Network gives calls for filling won ton wrappers with the mixture and frying the parcels. I didn't have the heart to deep fry something at home, so instead we made phyllo dough parcels and baked them and served them with a tomato and fennel yogurt sauce for dinner. They were delicious, but I was surprised to find that the flavor was really only intense enough when they were cold instead of hot. I still don't know how that many flavorful ingredients can go into something with such a subtle flavor coming out.
