Znoud El Sett (Arabic for Lady Arms) is ricotta cheese rolled in filo dough and then deep fried. It is not the healthiest dish (tons of sugar needed) but it is definitely delicious and makes a great treat to have every once in a while. In this recipe you will also learn how to cook the syrup called “atyr” that is eaten with Znoud El Sett. Some of you may also know atyr as the syrup that goes in baklava.

Get ready for some rolling and deep frying!


15 ounces of ricotta cheese
16 oz. package of filo dough (if you can find a box that has them separated in 2 rows, you will only need one row which makes 12) but if you have to use the box with one roll you can roll the remainder of your filo dough onto wax paper and freeze in a freezer bag

For Atyr (the syrup)
1/2 a teaspoon rose water (found in most Middle Eastern stores)
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of lemon juice


1. Put 2 cups of sugar in a small pot and add 1 cup of water and 1/2 teaspoon of rose water, on medium low heat, stir with wooden spoon and let it come to a boil (about 10 minutes)
2. After 10 minutes, at this point syrup has been boiling and thickening, turn stove off and add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and let cool off in pot
3. Cut filo dough in half vertically
4. Take two pieces of filo dough and put in front of you vertically, and take one and place horizontally towards the bottom facing you
5. Place 1 tablespoon of ricotta (or more if you want) in center on horizontal part. With your fingers, spread it out
6. Fold the left side to center, fold right to center, and fold up the bottom up to where cheese is, and roll
7. Dip end of roll in tiny bit of water to hold into place
8. Keep doing this until you are done using up the filo dough and/or your ricotta, if in a cool area, filo will dry quick, so use a dry linen cloth to cover filo as you work with it if needed
9. In deep frying pan, on medium heat, add a cup of crisco into pan to melt (you need enough to cover pastry while frying)
10. Once crisco is melted, carefully place each roll into pan, not too closely so they don’t stick together. If you didn’t add enough crisco, you can gently turn them around to make sure each part gets covered, takes about 1 or 2 minutes on each side, remove when they are golden brown
11. Remove to a plate with a paper towel covering it
Sahtein! 🙂

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
