Master Avram makes boyoz irreplaceable for people of Izmir.
Boyoz paste is a mixture of flour, sunflower oil and a hint of tahini. It is kneaded by hand and the ball of pasteis left to repose for 2 hours. The treatment performed through this process and the ingredients supplied by the same brands without change through the years ensure the unparalleled flavour of Boyoz. The tahini used in the dough not only increases the nutrient value of Boyoz, but also helps the dough to rise in layers and helps digestion. The scent of tahini also provides an indispensable complement. As such, in the eyes of Smyrnian, boyoz acquired the dimension of a symbol of their hometown or of their longing for it when away.
