Tsoureki is a celebratory sweet bread, much like panettone, that is traditionally made in Greece as a braided loaf for Easter but has become so beloved that nowadays you can find it in pastry shops throughout the year.
This variation comes filled with my homemade chocolate-praline cream, which is made with caramelised roasted hazelnuts, single-origin Belgian milk chocolate 43.5%, Dutch cocoa powder and is flavoured with Madagascan vanilla.
The Melíanthos tsoureki is naturally leavened with a special sourdough starter which delivers amazing flavour, structure, and prolonged shelf life.
It takes 3 days for each tsoureki to be made, from the moment the starter is first fed to the moment this exquisite delicacy comes out of the oven.
Fragrant cultured butter, fresh whole milk and free-range eggs are mixed together in the dough along with unique spices. Greek masticha, mahleb and cardamom, along with Madagascan vanilla and zest from organic oranges create a unique taste profile that makes each tsoureki a truly festive delight.
Enjoy it on its own, with your tea or coffee, not to mention a hot chocolate!
Each tsoureki weighs 700g before baking and makes for 12 generous portions. It is shipped in a beautiful gift package. Available all-year-round.
