Panorama Triangles

As you all know Athens is the capital of Greece. The second largest city of Greece is Thessaloniki. Thessaloniki is the capital of the region of Macedonia and we call it co-capital. It has a history of 2,300 years behind it, as it was founded in 315 BC by Cassander of Macedon. According to Wikipedia, it was an important metropolis by the Roman period and was the second largest and wealthiest city of the Byzantine Empire. Thessaloniki is home to numerous notable Byzantine monuments, including the Paleochristian and Byzantine monuments of Thessaloniki, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as several Roman, Ottoman and Sephardic Jewish structures. The city’s main university, Aristotle University, is the largest in Greece and the Balkans.

In 1944 Agapitos Valogiorgis opened his first pastry shop in downtown center of Thessaloniki and it was in that shop that Panorama Triangles were created for the first time, taking their name from the homonym suburb east of the city center. His pastry creations became famous and his sweets were considered to be of high quality. The people consuming them were among the most distinguished and well established in the area. Unfortunately his grandchildren didn’t live up to the expectations and the company recently has filled for bankruptcy.

Nevertheless, Panorama Triangles are here and many pastry shops carry them in their pastry line. For some time now, I have wanted to recreate them and try the homemade version. This past weekend was ideal, since we were going to some friends of ours and these little treats would be our gift to them.

They are not difficult to make, only they take some time to be prepared. They are so tasty and the cold cream counterbalances the sweetness of the syrupy phyllo triangles.

I made two attempts with the cream as the first one lacked the thick consistency I was looking for. The second time, both the taste and the consistency were exactly according to the store bought. If you are bored to make the triangles, you can just make phyllo nests and put the cream onto them. Taste wise it is going to be the same, plus it will save you time and effort.

I am sure you all noticed the new looks of this site. This is one of the many changes that will follow, in my effort to improve it and be able to bring to you food, not only from the Greek kitchen but also from the Mediterranean Sea in general. Stay tuned and sign up to be a part of this culinary trip!

In a deep pot put all the ingredients of the syrup and bring to boil in medium/high heat.

Count 5 minutes from the moment it starts to boil and remove from fire.

Take out the cinnamon stick.

Throw the cold triangles one by one or two by two in syrup and let them absorb some.

For the Cream

In a deep pot pour the milk, heavy cream, sugar, corn flour (corn starch for the US residents) and all-purpose flour.

Whisk to dissolve the flours and turn on the stove to medium/high.

When the milk starts to become hot start to whisk until the cream starts to thicken.

Whisk for a few seconds to make the cream fluffy again.

With a sharp knife cut the triangles along their one side and with a piping bag fill with cream.

  1. Πάρτε ένα φύλλο με την μακρύτερη πλευρά προς το μέρος σας.
  2. Βουτυρώστε το ελαφρά ή λαδώστε το.
  3. Βάλτε ένα άλλο φύλλο πάνω από το πρώτο.
  4. Βουτυρώστε το επίσης.
  5. Κόψτε σε 5 ίσες λωρίδες, όπως φαίνεται στις εικόνες και διπλώστε κάθε μία σε τρίγωνο όπως κάνετε με τα τυροπιτάκια.
  6. Κάντε το ίδιο για όλες τις λωρίδες και για όλα τα φύλλα κρούστας.
  7. Προθερμάνετε το φούρνο στους 200° C.
  8. Καλύψτε ένα ταψί με λαδόκολλα και τοποθετήστε τα τρίγωνα.

  1. Σε μια βαθιά κατσαρόλα ρίξτε το γάλα, την κρέμα γάλακτος, τη ζάχαρη, το κορν φλάουρ και το αλεύρι.
  2. Χτυπήστε με το σύρμα για να διαλυθούν και ανοίξτε το μάτι σε μέτρια/υψηλή θερμοκρασία.
  3. Όταν το γάλα αρχίζει να γίνεται ζεστό αρχίστε να ανακατεύετε μέχρι η κρέμα να πήξει.
  4. Βγάλτε από τη φωτιά και προσθέστε τη μαργαρίνη, τη βανίλια, το εκχύλισμα από πορτοκάλι και τους κρόκους των αυγών ανακατεύοντας συνεχώς.
  5. Αφήστε το να κρυώσει σε θερμοκρασία δωματίου, και στη συνέχεια τοποθετήστε το στο ψυγείο για τουλάχιστον 3 ώρες.
  6. Βγάλτε μετά τις 3 ώρες.
  7. Ανακατέψτε με ένα σύρμα ή στο μίξερ για μισό λεπτό για να αφρατέψει.
  8. Με ένα κοφτερό μαχαίρι κόψτε τα τρίγωνα κατά μήκος μιας πλευράς τους και γεμίστε τα με την κρέμα αφού την έχετε βάλει σε κορνέ.

  69. Louise says:

    If you only knew how long I’ve wanted to attempt making these Panorama Triangles Katerina. When my daughter traveled to Greece a few years ago one of the delicacies she spoke about was these. She even brought me back a cookbook from Greece hoping I would recreate them for her but alas, the book by Stelios Condaratos does not have the recipe in it. (I didn’t know exactly what they were called either:)

    I must admit, I’m a bit surprised the syrup is not made with honey as my daughter also brought me back honey from Greece which was out of this world!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Katerina…I must save this recipe for a celebratory surprise for my daughter when she is feeling better:)

    P.S. Your blog is absolutely stunning. I look forward to all its future deliciousness:)
