Easter is one of the biggest religious holidays of the year, so of course, we’re going to go all out and feast like our lives depended on it! And if you’re looking to get your hands on some delicious and indulgent Greek Easter goodies, then make sure you pay a visit to Fournos.
They’ll have everything you need for that massive and festive family gathering. Treat your loved ones to succulent roast lamb, red-dyed eggs, some sweet Tsourekia and Koulouria and much more. Don’t stress about all the preparations for Easter Sunday. Fournos has got you covered.
Tsoureki is a sweet yeast bread made of eggs, milk, and butter, and is a staple during Greek Easter. Not only is it moreish, but it also holds a religious meaning. The three-strand braid symbolises the Holy Trinity, while the red-dyed hard-boiled eggs braided into the dough symbolises the blood of Christ.
Red Eggs are perhaps the brightest symbol of Greek Easter. These red-dyed eggs symbolise the blood of Christ and rebirth. Rarely will a Greek Easter be celebrated without lots of red eggs. And they aren’t only dyed read, they come in an assortment of other colours too.
Other than the rich and indulge chocolate that’s in abundance during this time of the year, Greek biscuits are another must at any Greek Easter celebration. At Fournos, you can order three different types of crumbly biscuits, including Koulourakia (Greek butter biscuits), Kouriedes (Greek shortbread biscuits) and Melomakarona (Greek honey biscuits). These will make a lovely swet treat after your big Easter Sunday Lunch.
