I’ve been baking madly this week as I have the food and wine expo coming up this weekend.
We grew up not really celebrating Christmas in a big way – well I don’t remember it being a big deal put it that way. Easter is our big celebration for the year so that is more prominent in my memory. But one thing that did stand out over the Christmas season was the abundance of Greek Sweets my mum would cook and always have on hand in case someone dropped by.
If you’ve been following me for a while now, you may recall the funny incident during the time my husband and I were dating and his first ‘Avgolemono (Greek Egg & Lemon Soup) experience. You know, it’s a wintery day, my mum cooks our favourite soup, Greg joins us for lunch and … and he just couldn’t stomach the lemony soup served up.
