The first extraordinary dish cooked in the Greek kitchen was a spicy honey loaf. In it was mixed spice, ginger, honey flour and boiling water just to name a few ingredients! It was really lovely to make as the honey cake smell was always changing filling the air with the sweet sweet aroma. We will look foreword to eating it later!
