Today for lunch I tried Ali Baba on Macdougal St (across from Mahmouns) for the first time. Just grabbed a Falafel sandwich & loved every bite of it. Haven't had Falafel enough to really compare and am curious what the hounds thoughts were. Thanks.
In this episode of Cooking with Grandma, we meet Luba Stoyanoff, also known as Baba. Together with her eldest grandchild, Katherine, Baba discusses why she wasn't allowed to cook in her homeland of Greece, recounts the difficulties of making phyllo dough by hand, and prepares banitsa, the Bulgarian version of the Greek spinach pie spanakopita.
