Phyllo/filo is paper-thin dough made from flour, water and salt. Born in Istanbul (Turkey) during Ottoman reign, the ancient technique of stretching, was developed. Freshly handmade dough was filled with various filings, formed into different sizes, shapes, and then baked. This specialty with exceptional taste became a traditional dish throughout, known as Borek, Pita, Pie, and etc. Hundreds of years later in countries such as Serbia, Bosnia and their neighbours, this dish is still a big part of existing daily diets.
To set our bakery apart, we passionately crafted our own version of this very old specialty. With use of fresh/local ingredients and its amazingly flaky texture, Yufka Pastries are becoming a staple to almost everyone.
Owner and creator, Dejan Zivanovic was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Dejan truly started with humble beginnings. Through hard work and preservance Dejan has mastered the art of stretching dough proving that anything is possible. Now, the sky is truly the limit.
