Melomakarona *

With an ever inquisitive mind, I was curious about the platter of oval-shaped biscuits on the counter. Staff vaguely explained these were traditional Greek biscuits and kindly offered N & I one to try, complementary with our coffees. 

First thing on the agenda when I returned home was to identify what this mysterious biscuit was and the name turns out to be a tongue-twister indeed!

(Coarse-grained cookie soaked in honey syrup popular throughout Greece during the Christmas season. Traditionally made from honey and spice, the one I sampled today was a modern variation using honey & almonds. I was convinced there were hints of ginger but it must have been the spices.)

the platter was displayed in a similar fashion
