Get yourself ready for a middle eastern ride!
The world holds many extraordinary culinary secrets and tasting them is a real adventure. We’d love to introduce you to one of those secrets - Knafeh, a Middle Eastern shredded filo delicacy that will change the way Amsterdam sees Middle Eastern pastries.
This Middle Eastern delicacy is made with shredded filo dough (Kataif), stretchy mozzarella cheese, aromatic and floral orange blossom syrup and nutty pistachios. The combination is greater than the sum of its parts.
Picture a crispy pastry with an amazing aromatic and floral syrup. Shredded filo dough drenched in butter and pressed down to form a crust, topped with stretchy mozzarella and topped with more shredded filo.
The whole preparation is then baked to golden perfection, flipped and drizzled with a flowery orange blossom syrup just to be garnished with crushed pistachio nuts for colour and an extra crunch! — that’s Knafeh, right there! You’ve heard this before, but this time it’s true: there’s nothing like it.
6 Steps to happiness
1. Get your taste buds ready
and close your eyes, you’ll be
transported to the Middle East
in a blink of an eye.
4. Remove your Knafeh from the oven,
place a plate on top of it and flip it.
That’s a very neat party trick,
are we right?
2. Preheat your oven to 200°C.
It’s there already;
you should make use of it!
5. Pour the orange blossom syrup
over your still steaming Knafeh and
top it handsomely with pistachios.
3. Take off the lid, place the Knafeh
with its paper tray in the middle
of the oven and bake until it gets
a lovely golden-brown colour.
Approximately 30 minutes.
6. Enjoy! Melting mozzarella
crispy kataif, aromatic syrup
and crunchy pistachios -
what else can we ask for?!
psssst...sharing is caring
tell a friend, post a photo,
spread the word, Karma is great!

Hi! We are Guy & Inbal
A married couple and parents to Ari and little Adam who recently joined our family of grubbers in which food takes a very central role.
We both grew up in families where food was the experiential factor that united the family. A childhood rich of flavors, stews, pastries, and various kinds of dishes made by the hands of our wonderful mothers who spent hours in the kitchen just to make amazing food that makes us smile and our stomachs growl.
We're incredibly grateful. Why? Because we’re a family business making Knafeh with care at home and personally delivering it to your doorstep, and because we’re bringing smiles to everyone that tries it!
Knafeh is here to stay
Because sharing is caring, share your experience with friends and family. Let them take part in the exciting world of Middle Eastern pastry delicacies with Knafeh. We know you’ll love it as much as we do.
