Narration

Fine aromatic flavor of Crete

On my recent trip to Crete, I passed from the orange villages of Chania, there at the foot of the snow capped White Mountains. Flowering almond and loaded orange trees. Divine landscape beauty that I will never forget. Georgia, a beloved friend skillfully made us cookies and with all of her love has given us the recipe. These cookies are exported to Japan, they are handmade with exquisite, organic, materials. Flour from a stone mill and other materials from their farms. If you slacking and want your cookies prepared, you can find them also at a delicatessen.

From Georgia Perraki of Cretan Bakery, Fourne, Chania
