A treasure trove of Greek produce where I find essentials like ‘frygania’ (Elite Rusks) which you crumble and use as toppings for classics like moussaka or pastitsio or to bind nut fillings for desserts such as baklava and kataifi. Also, Cretan Rusks for Dakos salad, Papadopoulos Petit-Beurre biscuits for delicious fast cold desserts and smoked port meat ‘syglino’ for additions to casseroles and omelettes.
A small husband and wife team behind Greka, use local farmers and produce to recipes that go back to Sofia’s grandmother and make candied fruit in syrup‘spoon sweets’, jams with less commercial fruit such as quince and bergamot and pasta such as ‘hilopites’ and ‘kritharaki’ which is the Greek, thinner, smaller version of orzo.
