tsoureki

τσουρέκι

Greek Tsoureki Bread

Sweet holiday yeast bread, with a fluffy texture similar to a brioche, and often flavoured with mahlepi or mastica, which gives it its special Greek je ne sais quoi.

The Easter version, made into a twist, has red dyed eggs pressed on top, often three to symbolize the Trinity.
