Dali and Filoas

"Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it."

For 8 Filloas

2 eggs

1 Tbsp sugar

1 cup milk

¼ tsp salt

Orange zest

1 Tbsp orange Juice

½ cup of flour

2 Tbsp chocolate chips for decorating

1. Beat eggs and sugar together to a fluffy texture

2. Add milk, orange zest, orange juice, salt, and stir.

3. Gradually mix the flour into the batter.

4. Heat a pan or a griddle to medium heat (350F)

5. Pour ¼ cup of the batter onto the pan or griddle. Spread the batter by tilting the pan. If working with a griddle – spread the batter by pouring it in a large-circle shape (6” diameter)

6. Wait 60-90 second until the batter on the top side is not liquid anymore

7.  Using a spatula, separate the filloa from the pan, working from the edges all around, and then picking up the whole pastry, with the spatula placed under its center.

8. Flip, and cook for 10-20 more seconds.

9. When the filloas have cooled down you can decorate them to look like clocks.

10. To make a chocolate dispensing-bag, place 2 Tbsp of chocolate chps in a zipock bag and melt the chocolate by warming it in a microwave for 30 seconds. When chocolate is liquid, cut off a tiny corner of the plastic bag.

11. Other delicious options for filloas is to fill them with vanilla cream, or any other flavored crème you like, or to just roll them and enjoy the citrus flavor

Dali – Timeline

1904 – Born in Spain. Father is Atheist Notary. Mother is devout Catholic. Father is disciplinary, while mother indulges her son’s eccentric behavior. Both parents acknowledge and support their son’s artistic talent

1925 – Gets accepted into the prestigious San Fernando Academy of Art in Madrid school, but also gets kicked out for refusing to test in “History of Art”. Went as far as to say the teachers are not competent enough to test him. Continues to paint and has a first solo exhibition at the age of 21.


1930 – Meets Gala, his muse and wife. His father demands he leaves his parents house, due to his outrageous behavior. Dali uses the first money that he got for a commissioned painting to pay for a house in a village called port lligat .This will be the house in which Dali (and Gala) will live in for more than 50 years. Throughout the years he used the income he had from his art to by the neighboring houses and expand his territory into a “Dali – village”. You can still visit the place today, and it is kept exactly the way it was when Dali bought it.


1931 – Paints “The persistence of memory”. On his death bed he was asked if this painting was made in light of Einstein’s concept of time. He answered “ It was made in light of the concept of camembert cheese melting in the sun”.


1937 – Paints “Swans reflecting elephants”


1939 – Meets Freud and is influenced by his teachings.


1940’s – Salvador Dali & Gala live in New York, away from the horrors of WW2. He has a pet leopard.


1952 – paints Galatea of the Spheres. The name of the painting makes a connection between Gala’s name and the name of a nymph from Greek mythology, who was the subject of classical paintings. Dali’s choice to portray his subject in spheres points to scientific concepts of atomic physics, which intereste him greatly. *


1982 – Gala dies. Dali never gets over the loss.

1984 – Injured in a house fire, and needs to move into a different house where he can be cared for

1989 – Dies of heart failure at the age of 84.
