καλή χρονιά σε όλους!!

Happy New Year to family and friends. I was at it again in the kitchen and I would love to share an important and special recipe with you all.

History Of Vasilopita

Vasilopita (Βασιλόπιτα)

Vasilopita is a New Year’s Day bread or cake in Greece. The cake contains a hidden coin or trinket which gives good luck to the receiver.

The Ritual

On New Year’s Day families cut the Vasilopita to bless the house and bring good luck for the new year. At midnight the sign of the cross is etched with a knife across the cake. A piece of cake is sliced for each member of the family and any visitors present at the time, by order of age from eldest to the youngest.
