Melomakarona Biscuits

By Melissa Silva

Company Name: Navarino Icons

Company Location: Athens, Greece

Description: Melomakarona are strongly associated with the centuries-old Christmas traditions of the historic land of Messinia in Greece. The oblong biscuits are soaked in a special syrup made from quality wildflower honey and sprinkled with chopped walnuts. Prepared following an old-fashioned, authentic recipe, the melomakarona are baked at a local workshop, without the addition of any artificial flavorings or preservatives. To ensure the right ‘melt-in-the-mouth’ texture, the biscuits are individually molded and commonly served to guests with coffee.
