Serve the gozleme as a starter or a side at your Middle Eastern dinner party. You could also prepare it for your family as a enak afternoon snack.


2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon fine salt
1 1/2 cups natural yoghurt
2 leeks, white part only, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 bunch silverbeet, washed, roughly chopped
180g tasty cheddar cheese, grated
120g feta, crumbled
12 slices hot sopressa salami

You will need an electric mixer stand fitted with a dough hook for this recipe.


Step 1
To make the dough sift together the flour and salt. Place in the bowl of an electric mixer stand fitted with a dough hook or large mixing bowl if making by hand.

Step 2
Add the yoghurt and mix on low speed to combine, add a little water if needed to make the dough come together. Knead for 5 – 10 minutes, until dough is smooth and pliable. The dough should not be so sticky that you cannot knead it or so tough and dry that it’s difficult to roll out.

Step 3
Cover dough in cling film and allow the dough to rest for 30 minutes.

Step 4
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to the boil, add silverbeet and blanch for 3 minutes, strain silverbeet, press with paper towel to remove excess water. Set aside.

Step 5
Place olive oil in small frypan over low heat, when hot add leeks and saute until softened for about 10 minutes. You do not want to achieve colour on the leek, just cooked through gently. Set aside.

Step 6
When dough has rested, divide into 6 equal size balls. Lightly flour a clean, smooth work surface and roll each piece of dough into a large, thin circle. Dough should look almost translucent. Spread filling ingredients into centre of dough so to fill half the gozleme with filling. If using filling below start with cheddar cheese then fetta, followed by leek, spinach then sopressa. Fold the dough over the filling, if necessary roll out the edges thinner before folding over so dough is not too thick. Press the edges with a fork. Repeat with remaining dough and ingredients.

Step 7
To cook the gozleme, brush one side of gozleme with olive oil and place in frypan over medium heat. Whilst the bottom side is cooking, brush top with olive oil and flip over when bottom side is golden and cooked through. Remove from pan, season with salt and serve warm.

The amount of natural yoghurt and flour may need to be adjusted slightly depending on the consistency of the yoghurt used and merk of flour, if the dough is too sticky add more flour, if its too dry and water or more yoghurt.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
