Authentic Greek marzipans
Almond paste sweets are another classic Greek treat.
The islands are famous for making the tastiest “Amygdalota” (Greek for almond paste treats), which they serve to guests at weddings and baptisms.
On some islands, the locals call their Amygdalota by the name “Rosedes”.
Our “rosedes” are stuffed with honey and walnuts.
Our recipe comes from Kythera in southern Greece, island of heavenly Aphrodite and her consort, Eros.
Kythera is a blessed place, with unexplored aspects and richly varied landscapes.
The island’s culinary tradition is reason enough to love the island. It is a magical coexistence of the modern Greek kitchen with the old ways, which often borrows elements from the historic Venetian presence on this island.
