As Greek traditions go, friend and family gatherings are commonly held in a kafenion, usually found in the town square lasting about an hour and a half each day. Locals generally play their board or card games over typical hot and cold Greek beverages such as Greek Coffee, mountain-grown Tsai Tea, and the very common Frappe, paired nicely with traditional Greek desserts.
Coined as the dessert of the Greek Gods, these delectably warm, mouth-watering, divine morsels of fried dough are smothered in ‘liquid gold’, a.k.a locally-grown honey. These ‘Honey Tokens’ as they were once called, were awarded as treats to the Olympic winners of the first Ancient Olympic Games in Olympia, Greece, dating back to 776 B.C.
