Excerpt from the introduction:
«Αναρωτιέμαι συχνά που είναι το απόγειο της μαγειρικής. Είναι τα πιο φρέσκα υλικά, οι πιο πολύπλοκες γεύσεις είναι το καθημερινό ή το σπάνιο; Δεν είναι τίποτε απ΄όλα αυτά. Το απόγειο δεν είναι ούτε η κατανάλωση του φαγητού ούτε το μαγείρεμα, αλλά η προσφορά του φαγητού και η συντροφικότητα…»

Solid Ingredients (~12 servings)

  • 10 pastry sheets (1 pack 450g-1 lbs)
  • 100g (3.5 oz) cabanossi or another sausage
  • 300g (10.6 oz) feta cheese
  • 200g (7.1 oz) various semi hard cheeses, grated
  • a red pepper
  • 1 sachet (20g-0.7 oz) baking powder
  • 120g (4.2 oz) fine semolina

Liquid Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 150g (5.3 oz) milk
  • 150g (5.3 oz) vegetable oil
  • 150g (5.3 oz) soda water (~½ can of soda)
  • a little butter for the cake tin
Crumble the feta cheese with a fork and pour into bowl. Cut the Cabanossi into small pieces and add to the bowl with the feta. Mix in the grated cheese.
Wash, remove the seeds and stalks from peppers and cut into small diced. Combine the baking powder with the meal and put them all in a bowl. Mix well to combine the ingredients. This will be the filling of cheese pie.
Take one by one the phyllo and spread it onto the bench (without buttering) and sprinkle the top with 2-3 tablespoons of dry filling. About a little mixture on each sheet.
With our two hands right and left picking up the sheet, on the shorter side, like a fan.
You place -without pressure- at the base of a large cake tin, well buttered. You continue in the same way, placing each sheet / fan above the foregoing, one on one side and one on the other on the circle form to finish sheets and filling.
In the same bowl that you had the stuffing, break the eggs and add the milk, soda / soft drink and oil. Whisk gently to mix.
With deep spoon carefully pour the liquid mixture over the leaves into the cake tin.
Perhaps the liquid mixture is shown too much, but will be absorbed by the leaves.
Place the cheese pie to get cooked in a preheated oven at 190℃ (374℉, Gas Mark 5) for 40'-45', or as needed. When it gets gold and blonde color and detach the leaves from the sides of the form is ready. Taste and with a stick / skewer comes out dry.
