Puffy pita

.
A good job to have in winter.


Hot pita falling from the conveyor belt at a bakery in Shuk Mahane Yehuda, Jerusalem's huge open air market.

For a second the pitot are still puffed up with steam; then quickly they become flat and normal.

Kinda like the Dutch "pannekoeken!" Puffy until the steam goes out! Would love to sink my teeth into one of those pitas!

Very nice and spontaneous image, Dina. I like it very much.
About "literary" puzzles, I've created and published many (in magazines); I'd like to put some on the blog, but they are written in Italian and moreover must be solved!

Lovely, nothing better than a fresh pitta straight from the oven!

It seems that not much has changed in Mahane Yehuda since the 90s!

I was wondering about the puffiness. Cool info! I've never seen pita bread being baked before.

Petrea said...

Looks delicious! I'll bet it smells great, too.

Happy new year, Dina. You've been such a wonderful part of my 2009!

Fida said...

Have a marvelous and photolicious 2010!

I was attracted to your blog from reading your comments on Robin's blog, if that makes any sense. I like the way you write and think. I am going to start reading your blog because I feel by not knowing you, I am missing something. I hope you understand. You can check out my blog; however, I am afraid you may have no interest in the subjects I write about.

Shalom.

Yum. I could have one just now, to go with my glass of celebratory wine
(and I just had dinner too!)
Happy New Year, Dina.
