Special Breads Of Sfakia
Posted 11 January 2008 - 10:08 PM
Can anyone tell me the names of breads that are distinctive to Sfakia? I know
(and love) the Sfakian pies, but are there specialty breads for the dinner table?

After which Aurelia are you named? Hope not the Paramecium aurelia
If I want to know something about Greek food I always use this site or my Greek cookbook, the latter had only the recipe for the Tsoureki, but I think you know that one. If not I'll mail it to you.

Thanks for the link. Nice one. Yes, I know about the Easter bread. I am trying to find
about more about Cretan specialty breads--just the names and some descriptions, but
not the recipes.
I don't think I was named after anyone in particular, but my uncle, who was a bit of a classics scholar,
knew the name meant "golden one," and he suggested the name to my Mother. He knew, also, that
Aurelia was the mother of Caesar, so perhaps he had that in mind as well. Anyway, I carry it proudly.

It's a beautiful name. I was just interested in the the etymology of your name. Tacitus prescribed here (Ceasars mother) as the ideal matrona and Plutharch as a strict and respectable woman which makes you indeed the golden one. Have you incidentally got gold curly hair?

have been fortunate to spend summers abroad, primarily in London and Greece. Even
the poets are at a loss to describe the wonderful light of Greece.
I would like to post my photo, but don't know how to do it.
Can you provide instructions or lead me to the spot on this site where instructions are given?
