Athenian pasty (recipe)

Based on a dish I was served just around the corner from Hadrian’s Library, Athens (Βιβλιοθήκη του Αδριανού, Αθήνα).

Ingredients per pasty:

  • Pre-made pastry
  • 50g feta
  • 2 cherry tomatoes
  • Black pepper
  • Dash of olive oil

Method:

  1. Put feta on pastry as shown
  2. Halve cherry tomatoes, arrange as shown
  3. Grind on black pepper
  4. Drizzle on olive oil
  5. Cover feta & tomato with excess pastry as if you’re wrapping a present, pinching pastry together with your fingers to seal it
  6. Getting on a little more black pepper
  7. Bake for ~17 minutes @ 220 C
