Word of the Day Pashtida: Easy as Pie

Eyeing that quiche in the window? Ask the sales clerk for the 'pashtida.'

Watch any Israeli cooking show or flip through the recipe section of a magazine or newspaper, and you’re likely to come across something called a pashtida (pash-ti-DA). That’s the Hebrew word for a savory pie, quiche or casserole (not to be confused with pai - pronounced pie - which is what Israelis call sweet pies).
