ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
-Your pies will come Unbaked or frozen
They come not baked to allow you more storage options! You can have them in the fridge unbaked for 1 day or 2 days maximum, then they must be either frozen or baked - otherwise the phyllo will get soggy. If you freeze them, they can last up to 3-4 months and simply enjoyed by thawing, brushing the top with olive oil and baking them at 350-375 degrees ( about 20-25 min or until golden brown and flaky!) Then just let them cool and enjoy!
-Storage / Reheating?
Once baked, you can store your remaining baked pies in the refrigerator up to 5 days. Whenever you're ready for your next triangular bit of deliciousness, simply throw it in the oven for 5-10 minutes at 350 -375 degrees or just until crispy ! You can also use the microwave to warm it up, but it wont be as crispy.
- When do I receive my Triangles?
-Due to the labor intensive nature ( to put so much love into this product) We must gather the fresh ingredients in bulk and then make all the orders the same day. We are currently making them weekly, so we take orders typically a week ahead of time or By Monday or Tues for pickup on Thursdays through Sundays of the same week. Pickup locations are either the commercial kitchen or one of the local farmers markets- However communicate with us and we will discuss pickup details.
-Whats are the general Ingredients?
-Here are the general ingredients for any allergen information: ( note the vegan is the same without the egg , feta and chicken base. Any variation will also have this signature mix, in additional to whatever ingredients make up the Triangle type.)
-Spinach / Onion / Leeks / Scallions / Dill
-Olive oil / salt / pepper
-feta / egg / chicken base ( natural-GMO free) / Phyllo dough
-How do I best serve them?
-They can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature as mentioned. You can serve them with a greek salad, with any side you like or even have them as the main dish!
-Are they gluten free?
No, however; gluten free phyllo dough does exist and we may be able to make a larger order upon request though the price would be affected due to the additional ingredient costs. We can also provide you the mix to enjoy however you choose! Reach out for any additional questions.
-Are they vegan or vegetarian?
The vegan option is of course vegan, however our classic spanakopita is traditionally not vegan or vegetarian because it has some lightly sprinkled feta cheese in the mix as well as the mix being cooked with a hint of chicken base and a few eggs in the mix. They would be vegetarian aside from the chicken base and eggs which helps bring the flavors together.
-Is there butter?
No! The only dairy contained in our pies is a little bit of feta cheese and a couple of eggs . We choose to use olive oil instead of butter between phyllo layers.
-Are they healthy?
Absolutely! Its simply a mix of fresh vegetables and herbs, with some thin layers of phyllo dough! Of course healthy is generally relative and everyone has slightly different dietary needs, however; we use the freshest ingredients possible, with the main ingredients being spinach, phyllo dough, a little feta, onion, herbs, spices and olive oil. The only debatable ingredients are the feta and phyllo and there is very little of either. Our triangles are mostly comprised of fresh greens!
You will always feel good after enjoying our healthy triangles : )
-Can you modify orders or do any special requests?
Yes and No, as a small, family owned and operated business, it is difficult to cater to special requests or modifications for many reasons. Ask us and we will do our best depending on the volume of that week!
We generally cannot, but it truly depends. Some requests may seem like a potentially easy , but think of the sheer volume of these simple requests, and how complicated and time consuming they can add up to be for a small operation- affecting efficiency , costs and the overall operation. Since we cannot cater to them all, we must be fair and generally stick with the system :)
