Phyllo pastry is one ingredient that won't disappoint and brings a crispy crust to the table. The pastry sheets can be incorporated into a variety of bites whether it's savoury or sweet - they will certainly bring a gleam of light to what would've otherwise been a dull dessert or starter.

Tip: Never work with phyllo when it’s dry otherwise it won't be pliable enough to shape and handle – so you need to keep a damp cloth over it if you aren’t usng it immediately. Also, the more gentle you are when handling it, the better as it’s extremely thin and delicate.

Here are a few of our most memorable moments with phyllo: 

1. Milk tart phyllo cups

2. Phyllo and baby marrow tart

3. Bobotie filo parcels with apple ring chutney

4. Boerewors phyllo wheel
