Another Instagram Live series we’re launching is CB Cooks, which will bring our walk leaders into your home for a live cooking demonstration. First up is Carolina Doriti, our Athens bureau chief, who will be cooking galatopita, a Greek milk pie, on Sunday, April 19, at 11 a.m. EDT (GMT-4).

If you want to cook along with Carolina, here are the ingredients you’ll need for a 25 cm round pan (although all are welcome to come watch, even if you’re not cooking):

Cream Filling
1 lt (4 cups) full fat milk
50 gr (1/4 cup) fine semolina
120 gr (2/3 cup) brown sugar
50 gr (1/3 cup) all purpose flour
1 vanilla pod (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)
2 eggs
1 tablespoon butter (real butter)
Pinch of salt
Zest from 1 organic lemon

5-6 layers of phyllo
100 gr (7 tablespoons) melted butter
70 gr (a heaping 1/2 cup) walnuts
70 gr (a heaping 1/3 cup) brown sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

Powdered sugar and cinnamon for topping

In addition to the 25 cm round pan, you’ll need a whisk, a small blender, a large saucepan with a thick bottom, a mixing bowl, a surface to lay out the phyllo and a brush, a small saucepan to melt butter (on the stove or in the microwave), a soft spatula and a scale.

To join the live video on Sunday, head to our Instagram account. When we’re live, the Culinary Backstreets profile picture will appear with a colorful ring around it and the word Live. Tap our profile picture to view the live video. When our live stream ends, the video will be available to watch on our Stories for 24 hours. After that, it’s gone for good.
