~ GREEK EASTER IS APRIL 28 THIS YEAR ~
TSOUREKI | SWEET BRAIDED LOAF
*red egg -- pre-order now / pick-up starting 4/24*
While we make this delicious sweet bread throughout the year, Easter is when it's most traditionally enjoyed by Greeks! Flavored with ground mahlepi (mahlab, mahlep), the cherry pit of an eastern Mediterranean variety which lends a sweet, fruit-almond flavor.
Tsoureki come with sesame seed garnish. Order with a traditional red-dyed egg embedded for an authentic Greek experience! Delicious fresh, or toast with butter. Loaves will last 5 days and also freeze well.
wheat flour / eggs / butter / sugar / yeast / water / imported mahlepi spice
$12 (1.5lb loaf)
$14 (1.5lb loaf with dyed red egg)
FLAOUNA | CYPRIOT CHEESE PASTRY
*pre-order now / pick-up starting 4/24*
This lightly sweet cheese pastry is a family favorite and hails from the beautiful island of Cyprus. The cheese variety is simply referred to as "flaouna cheese" and is produced only in the Spring time, making it synonymous with breaking fast at Easter.
Sesame seed studded dough parcels are filled with the cheese mixture, baked to a golden finish and can be enjoyed warm or ambient. We love them for breakfast or along with fruit as a dessert.
wheat flour / eggs / butter / sugar / vanilla / milk / imported flaouna and halloumi cheeses / raisin / fresh mint / baking powder
$4.50 (5oz parcel, single)
$48.00 (5oz parcel, dozen)
KOULOURAKIA | TWIST COOKIE
As simple as this cookie is, it stands as one of our all time favorites. We offer it year round, but Easter is a very traditional time to make these butter cookies in Greek culture. Enjoyed by all ages, kids will grab them from the cookie plate and adults will enjoy dunking them in their coffee!
wheat flour / butter / sugar / egg / orange / baking powder
$5 (6pc pkg)
$18 (3 dozen)
