First, it’s important to note what kataifi pastry is not. Kataifi pastry IS NOT shredded fillo, rather, it is what we like to call, string pastry.
Kataifi pastry is made completely differently to fillo, which starts out as a batter. The batter is poured through fine spouts onto a heated metal plate, where it is briefly dried and cooked. It is during this process that the beautiful fine strands of kataifi pastry (string pastry) are formed.
We have perfected the art of making kataifi pastry over the last 60 years and is the reason why here at Antoniou, we’re known as the fillo & kataifi pastry specialists.
