This Veganuary 2020 we’re bringing you a VERY special dish all the way from ancient Egypt:

Fateer & Feta Platter

Fateer & Feta Platter

So, what is Fateer?

Fateer Meshaltet is a flaky, fluffy, buttery bread that is insanely delicious. During ancient Egypt, it was left at temples as offerings for the gods. It literally translates to cushioned pies and it has become a symbol of hospitality in Egypt. In 2009, it was served to President Obama during his visit to Egypt. Fateer is often made by Egyptian families to give as gifts to visitors and friends as well as for holidays, weddings and other celebrations. It is said that Fateer was the inspiration for the French croissant.

This is a labor-intensive dish that is meant to be shared with friends and family.
