Hi, I'm looking for some history and recipes on Jewish Greek (Sephardic) pasties/desserts. Can anyone help?

You might check your local library for a cookbook called The World of Jewish Desserts by Gil Marks. Each recipe is prefaced by a historical and cultural interpretation and baking tips. Every few pages, Marks inserts a few paragraphs about the country a recipe comes from, a chronicle of the use of certain spices, or baking styles. For example, after a recipe for Kahkahaw Babka (Polish chocolate sweet bread), Marks gives a short history of Jews in Poland and the Baltic States which explains how these dishes developed and were sustained. He also gives a scientific explanation on the properties of basic ingredients and how they interact with one another.

You can also buy the book online if it is something you are interested in owning.

Oh, also, I was looking for the book that Karen suggested, here is a link to a search for the book, just put in your location info and it will locate it in your local libraries. (it was in three of my local libraries)
