The Christmas season is the period when literally everyone is going through their grandmother's old recipes book, trying out traditional recipes for baklava and melomakarona. We tried "foinikia" a traditional Chios seasonal recipe, with olive oil, honey, semolina and almonds. Once the mix is ready and the foinikia are cut into their characteristic diamond shape, they are baked for about 45 minutes, filling your house with the aromas of cinnamon and clove.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
