Shredded wheat pastry - kataifi-is one of the least known ingredients in the Greek kitchen, but it is easy to use and makes everything look unique and delicious. Kataifi is a style of phyllo pastry that looks like it has been passed through a shredder. The strands are as thick as ukulele strings an, when cooked, have the appearance and texture of shredded wheat.
Most forms of kataifi are sweets, typically with nuts and honey which make them flavorful, crunchy, and very sweet. However, some cooks also use kataifi dough to make unique savory appetizers which may be made with ground meat or vegetables.
