Vassilopita is the Greek New Year’s Cake with a coin in it. This year I made a Grand Marnier Vassilopita topped with White Chocolate glaze.
Greek traditional desserts
Glyko Portokali (orange fruit preserve) is one of the most popular Greek preserves. The traditional way of making “glyko portokali”, is by using the peels making them into rolls whereas this one uses the whole fruit.
Pastelli, sometimes written “pasteli, with one l”, is one of the healthiest Greek sweets, made with honey and sesame seeds.
