Fanouropita from

The best ingenious recipe… with nine symbolic ingredients.

Today the tradition wants us to make fanouropita, we give you the recipe for the best fanouropita and in fact Cretan, since Agios Fanourios in Crete is glorified. Besides, it is said that the Saint is the protector of the farmers and the shepherds and reveals to them the stolen animals…

Alexandros Papadiamantis writes that “whoever invokes Agios Fanourios must always say God forgive the Saint’s mother, God forgive her”. It is said that the pie is offered to save the Saint’s mother who was cruel, stingy and sinful; the truth is that we do not know much about his life.

Today we are still used to making fanouropita to find something we lost or for the Saint to reveal something important in our lives. Others believe that the tradition was created because the name comes from “I look”, which means reveal.
