Travel not to escape life but for life not to escape you
Galaktompoureko is a traditional syropy sweet dessert made in a baking pan consisting mainly of phyllo and custard cream. There are various recipes and ways to prepare it but the cream usually has a lemon or vanilla flavour, while the syrup is made from sugar and water. Although it is considered traditionally Greek, some believe that its origins could be traced in the Middle East. Also there are testimonies that in the 18th century Ottomans in Konstantinople made a dessert with many layers of plyllo and cream, that was called “gateau fayette” due to its similarity with a French dessert.
