Fifteen Spatulas

You’re invited to make Baklava with me this Friday!

Hi friends!

Several food bloggers are hosting holiday cooking themed hangouts on google+…and I will be hosting one this Friday! Live from my kitchen, and straight to your computer, I’m going to show you how to make Baklava, which is a dessert made with crisp phyllo dough layered with cinnamon walnuts and soaked in a citrus honey syrup. It’s one of my favorite desserts and my family has been eating it every Christmas for as long as I can remember.

So here is how this hangout works. You can participate in one of two ways:

  1. Up to 9 people can be in the google hangout with me on the panel, and these people will be able to interact and ask questions. If you want to be in this panel, it is required that you have a webcam and a microphone, and be able to arrive 10 minutes ahead of time (4:50pm ET). If you are interested in this, please send me an email at with your name and email, and I will send you an invite to the event.
  2. If you don’t have a webcam or microphone and just want to watch, the event will be live on air. There will be a chat room where you can type comments and questions. Send me an email (or leave a comment below) and I will add you to the event, and you will get the link to watch the hangout when it starts.

The event is this Friday 12/21 at 5pm Eastern Time…on your computer! Yippee! It will run about 30 minutes.

See you then! Don’t forget to send me your email if you’d like an invite.

This event is part of the Google #holidayhangouts. Thanks to Chef Dennis Littley for orchestrating these hangouts! Here’s the schedule if you want to check out the other fantastic hangouts.

    I am leaving on Friday…maybe next time and then you can tell me how it works.

    I wish you and your a very Merry Christmas and a Properous New Year…you are a sweetheart and I am glad to be following your beautiful blog…

  3. I know how to make baklava. So delicious and fun to make. Have fun with your gathering. Baklava for all!

  4. What a fun idea! If I weren’t working then driving home on Friday I would totally watch! Have a blast, I’m sure it’s going to be delicious.

  5. That is SO cool! I would love to do it, but I’ll be at a Christmas party! Best of luck, it’ll be GREAT!

  6. I printed your recipe off yesterday and told my daughter that we were going to make some on Sunday. We were stationed in Turkey in the 80″s and they made them with pistachios, so we will be using them instead of walnuts. We also are going to make Burek. It is made with phyllo dough, feta cheese and parsley. Then you roll them up like a cigarette or better yet a triangle and then deep fry them. Yummy. But seeing your post about Baklava is what started the wheels thinking. Thanks so much.

    • Hi Sherree, that Burek you talked about sounds awesome. I’m going to look that up and try it, because I love all the ingredients in it! What branch of the military had you in Turkey? My husband and I haven’t been anywhere too interesting yet, in terms of where we’re stationed. Just in the US. We tried to be stationed in Italy for our current term but didn’t get it.

      • We go to a Serbian restaurant and their burek are much different than that. They are phyllo stuffed pillows of creamy feta cheese , egg, very fluffy . They are round and almost as big as the dinner plate and about 2 inches thick. Layers and layers of flaky dough. Delicious. Comes with baba ganoush, salad, oil and bread.

        I make spanakopita several times a year. Especially at Easter.

  7. Que dulce tan estupendo.
    Un saludito

  8. Another post I just saw pop up in my reader and I LOVE Baklava! Next time :)
