Borekas is a Jewish Sephardic dish which is quite similar to the Turkish “börek.” Borekas can be prepared with various types of dough: strudel dough (thin leaves), rising dough or with types of prepared dough found in the market. This snack item can be then shaped in a variety of ways and filled with meat, vegetable or cheese filling.

Originally from Turkey, borekas (which comes from the Turkish word börek, or pie) belong within the larger category of small savory pies common throughout the Middle East, North Africa, and parts of Asia. They are a favorite dish among Sephardic Jews who serve them on holidays and other celebratory occasions. According to The Book of Jewish Food (Knopf, 1996) by Claudia Roden, Iberian Jews included borekas as part of their Sabbath meals as early as the 16th century—a practice that continues today.
