Byrek is made and eaten throughout Albania. Byrek me Kos is a yogurt and white cheese pie and is just one of the many variations you can find throughout the Balkans.

Layers of filo pastry are rolled out, within the middle of them a filing is added and then the byrek is shaped. Traditionally you can have a whole pie, spirals and also a lot of the street sellers will have triangle or horseshoes.

I love making byrek me kos as a giant spiral, there is something about it that puts a smile on my face once it is all complete – this works really well with homemade filo pasty.

I’ve also made Spinaq dhe çedërByrek Djathë and Byrek me Spinaq as well as meat versions which we don’t have as often. Byrek is one of the most popular, most loved, most traditional foods of Albania.
