This fragrant, delicious Easter bread takes only 10 minutes to prepare. However you will have to be patient and wait for the dough to rise properly. When baked and cool you may store it wrapped in clingfillm to keep it from drying out.
Once, during an interview for an Italian magazine, I was asked which food brings to mind childhood memories. My answer was giouvetsi. That same day I invited those journalists over to my restaurant and offered them giouvetsi. They simply applauded!
One of the most adored desserts all around the world. If you want to keep the pastry crispy down to the last bite all you have to do is brush it with some egg white just before it’s done and then bake it for a few minutes more. This way your pastry will be “sealed” and it will not suck up any moisture from the filling!
