– Homemade Greek Desserts & Pastries –
We are Olympian SWEETS, so named in honor of my father who taught me this Baklava, and who was an Olympian in the Olympic Games of 1948 – London, England and also 1956 – Melbourne, Australia, as a Greco-Roman wrestler.
Our special recipe comes from my tiny village of Protopappas, in the northwest corner of Greece. I have made it for over 40 years, and use only the best quality organic ingredients. Because Baklava is so laborious to prepare, many people only make it for special times and events, such as Christmas, Easter, and weddings.
In ancient times, many people made Baklava with olive oil because olives were so plentiful in Greece, and because butter was very expensive. In fact, using butter was a sign of wealth. Today, other countries near and around the Mediterranean claim Baklava as their own, and that theirs is the best. I am sure they are tasty. (Some use soybean oil and corn syrup – yuck!)
Honestly, all I can say to you is,
Try my OLYMPIAN SWEETS, and you decide!
We currently offer: Baklava and Olympian Energy Bites.
Baklava is made with crunchy phyllo pastry, honey, Georgia pecans, a blend of spices – and patience.
