    A Greek favourite that makes everyone think you are a master chef, yet it is sooo easy to make!! I taught a Greek friend how to make sticky toffee pudding, and she taught me this fabulous recipe.

    Orange flower water provides the beautiful orange taste in this traditional Greek cake called Revani. Don't skip the syrup cos that is what really makes the cake but you can reduce the sugar in the cake by up to 1/4 cup (60g) if you want a less sweeter cake.

    A sponge like cake with an olive oil base that is great with tea or coffee. I use Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil as the Greek oil is always the darkest and most flavoursome. If you want to get with the Greek theme, finely chop some rosemary mix it with caster sugar and sprinkle over the cake before putting into oven. For a sponge it keeps pretty well in an air tight container.

    This is a Greek cheesecake-like tart prepared with honey and unsalted mizithra or ricotta cheese. These are usually prepared during the Easter festivities in the Cycladic islands, especially in Sifnos and Ios.

    Traditional Greek New Year's Day breakfast food. Each person in the family gets a slice starting with the youngest. The person who gets the coin in their piece, gets good luck for the whole year
