International Education Week Food Friday recipe: How to make burek


Today is day five of International Education Week, a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education held Nov. 16 through 20 “to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.”

KCC is celebrating International Education Week all week long, with a different focus each day. Today’s theme is Food Friday, when we’ll be posting favorite international recipes from the KCC community.

How to Make Burek

First up is a recipe for the pastry dish burek recommended by Admissions Director Marko Delic, who was born and raised in Montenegro.

Delic said he misses Montenegro’s rich culture, but most of all the food influenced by many neighboring countries. In preparing burek, a dish he loves that is widely prepared in the Balkans, he appreciates the Bosnian recipe demonstrated in the YouTube video embedded below from YouTuber Jasna Zahirovic.
