Pasteli - Sesame bars

Recipe: Pasteli
Recipe By: Kiria Andonia

Now this is the ultimate dessert which goes back to Ancient Greece.  It was even mentioned in Homer's Illiad.  The two basic ingredients are sesame seeds and honey.  In ancient times it was made with these two ingredients and sometimes dried fruit was added.  The mixture was rolled into a bitesized ball and served as a welcome treat at a wedding.

Magiritsa - Greek Easter Soup

Greek Easter is upon us and this means time to dye the eggs, make the koulourakia (Smyrneika of course!) and my all time favourite soup...Magiritsa.
