Something I came across while living abroad. Many of the older generation living in the area referred to as the holy land, will use only the homemade version. I don't expect anyone to actually try it, but then again, one never knows. I personally prefer the homemade, as it has a fresher taste than commercially frozen fillo dough's, and the frozen kind can often break if opened too soon, or while warming to room temp, one became rather sticky on me. equipment needed: rolling pin, wooden dowel no less than 24 inches long and 3/4 inch diameter, large cloth, and wax paper.
