Sanela Biloglavic, a Chelsea resident by way of the Bosnian city of Zenica, has become known for her pita. Pictured, Biloglavic spinning sheets of dough.
Not to be confused with the bread common on Middle Eastern tables, this pita refers to several types of stuffed phyllo pastries. Pictured, Biloglavic's stuffing.
They’re called burek if filled with ground beef; sirnica for cheese; zeljanica for spinach and cheese; krompirisu for potatoes; and tikvenica for zucchini.
For each pita variety, Biloglavic rolls it snugly three or four times, and then cuts the cord of dough and filling away from the big sheet of dough.
