The traditional "Vasilopita" ( a sweet bread served in Greece on New Year's Day - St Basil's day) from Agiasos mountain village  is prepared all year round and not only on New Year's Eve as is customary in the rest of Greece.

Its history is lost in time and mixed with that of  St. Basil from the region of  Cappadocia.

Legend says that within its leaves were hidden the golden jewellery to be shared fairly.

Many famous Chef's  tried it on their visit to Agiasos village and they were impressed.

Made with a special technique, it consists of about 50 leaves that are fermented with boiled anise, oil, orange and filled with local dry "myzithra" cheese to combine salty and sweet in perfect proportion.
