- Allow our kataifi pastry to thaw completely before opening the packet.  Remove from the refrigerator a minimum of 2 hours before using.

- The kataifi will be in a “ball”  and should be pulled apart, separated and “fluffed up” by pulling the strands apart. Do not be scared to be quite vigorous when doing this as it will lead to better results.

- Prepare all other ingredients before you remove the pastry from its plastic bag. Kataifi pastry will dry out if left exposed, so it is best to work quickly with the pastry, maybe even covering it with a slightly damp tea towel if required. 

- Unused kataifi pastry should be rolled up and SEALED TIGHTLY back into its plastic bag, placed back in the packet and returned to the refrigerator as soon as you have finished using it.
