This tasteful desire is really both liked by the whole Greece and the tourist visiting,who get amazed by it's taste.

 

 

 

 

Melopita(Honeypie),from Sifnos isle:

 

The Sifnos isle has a great variety of traditional recipes, one of the best is Melopita as locals believe.

It is a pie made of Myzuthra(greek sweet cheese) and honey.

In the isle it is mainly made in Easter but you can find it in each and every period of the year.

Sweets similar to Melopita can be found in Mykonos and Ios islands.

And last but -surely- not least,

 

Pasteli,from Kalamata:

 

Pasteli is one of te only sweets that seems to be existed from Ancient Greece till today,due to the fact that it is mentioned really often in Greek and Byzantine texts.

In Greece you can find it in each and every place (supermarkets,mini-markets,even in biological product stores), but the place where it is said to be the most tasteful is Kalamata.

If you are not sure what kind of Pasteli to choose,we highly recommend you the once that is made of honey and is sugarfree.
