This could be the best-smelling hands-on session ever, as spice queen Ana Sortun gets you grinding, pounding, toasting, roasting and blending your own exotic spice mixes, before you cook up an array of Turkish, Lebanese, Greek and Moroccan-inspired dishes that look and taste as good as they smell.
Home-Made Yuftka Dough:
Sift the flour with the salt into a medium mixing bowl.
Make a well in the middle of the flour and add all the wetingredients. Using your hands to draw flour in from the sides, work the mixture into sticky dough.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead well for about three minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Working on a lightly floured surface, divide the dough into half and then each half into six pieces.
Using a lightly floured rolling pin roll the balls of dough into flat rounds so that they are about 15cm in diameter.
Heat the griddle or a large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat and wipe it with a little oil. Slap one of the flat rounds onto it. Using your fingertips to shift the dough about, making sure it browns and puffs up here and there. Brush the upper side with more oil and flip it over.
Spinach and Cheese Filling:
In a small skillet, melt one tablespoon of butter and add the onion.
Cook over medium heat until the onion is soft and translucent about six-eight minutes. Cool and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, prepare the filling by combining the cheeses, cooked onion, herbs and spinach.
Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Spread ¼ cup or more filling evenly over the cooked side of the pastry. Fold it in four.
Crisp the pies on both sides to brown them and melt the filling.
Spoon za’atar over the top just before serving.
Its’ very difficult to find straight za'atar without the sesame seeds and sumac already mixed in. Za'atar is confusing because it means two things....the herb za'atar that is a relative of thyme and the blend of the herb mixed with sesame seeds and sumac. I usually prefer to use the Jordanian blend, if you can find straight herb then the ratio is as above.

Step 6: Conclusions Now you're finished! A professional looking canvas at a very low cost. Here's a few notes that might help as well. If you are stretching a lot of paintings at once, it might be easier to cut all the wood at once but just make sure to keep the pieces together. If your painting is especially large then a cross brace or two may be necessary to create a strong frame. It is a matter of preference but generally if the painting is larger than 3 feet across then a cross brace would be a good idea. For this simply use a 1” x 2” strip cut square and staple it (on both sides of the frame) in the center. The should not be used for the brace pieces. Good luck with framing!

Step 5: Stretch the Canvas Now you are finally ready to stretch the canvas. To do this lay a piece of paper down on a clean surface, and then the painting face down. Line up the frame so that the molding is against the canvas. To stretch this pull one side of the canvas up and around and staple it in the center of that side. Next take the canvas pliers, stretch the canvas on the opposite side and staple in the center. Although this can be done alone, a second pair of hands might make this step a little easier. Flip the painting over and make sure that it lines up properly with the frame. If it does you can begin stapling the rest of these sides. On the one side of the sides with a staple in it, place two staples, approximately 2”-3” on either side of the center staple while stretching the canvas. Do the same on the opposite side of the painting. Continue to work your way outwards towards the corners, until there you are about 1” from the corner. Next repeat this process along the other two sides of the painting, stretching the canvas tight. When you have completed this you can fold the corners of the painting as you would a present and staple them to the strip in the back. It is a matter of preference if you want the folds on the top and bottom or sides of you painting but being consistent will make them look better.
