Getting to know the world of Greek patisserie, desserts and confectionary is an adventure in itself!
Innumerable patisseries (Zaharoplasteia) in every corner of Greece offer an incredible range and diversity of sweet options. The origins of these products vary widely too as a result of the rich tapestry of Greek history.
Today’s pastries and confectionary emanate from the recipes of Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman dynasties, as well as much more recent influences from Europe, particularly France.
The rich history and traditions of Greek desserts are both eclectic and unique; we are fortunate that the cultural significance of the culinary genre within Greece has ensured that recipes have been faithfully passed on from one generation to the next.
