Producing Kataifi is the the same process like preparing dough for baklava. But it´s much more difficult because of making one long, thin thread out of the dough.This continous thread is wound up to Kataifi or commonly known as angel hair.

Afterwards it gets baked and filled with the essential nut mix. This is made up of roasted walnuts, pistachios and a little pinch of cinnamon. Finally the Kataifi get poured over with a syrup out of lemon and honey. Nowadays this syrup varies to different tastes.

“Simple, healthy and tasty..”Yoghurt with honey

Yogurt with honey is an old tradional recipe. In the past the only sweetener was honey. So the people took creamy yogurt and honey simply together and created the only sweet they could afford.

The secret of this good dessert is very simple. You just need perfect honey. We use natural honey from Rhodes, which is collected on the natural herb and thyme meadows. The bees do their great job from spring to early summer. So Rhodes is known for its excellent honey. Combined with well hung and creamy yogurt it gets garnished with walnuts. Since centuries and decades a delicious sweet. A semi-dry red house wine fits perfectly.
