Honey

No matter how many years might pass, I will never forget the sound of my yiayia’s raspy but sweet voice telling me as she served me, the morning after I’d stayed over at her house: “You have to eat well. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!”.

I smiled and ate her hearty breakfast. But my favourite delicacy, as plain as it might sound was a slice of bread with butter and honey. It’s amazing with how much energy honey can fill you up!

I came to love Greek honey pretty quickly and as I grew older I learned to incorporate it not only in my breakfast, spread on a slice of buttered bread, but also in all my other culinary adventures as well.
