Treat your guests in a sweet way with just a treat!
Our lovely bride come from Crete; a beautiful island in the south part of Greece known for its varied terrain, which ranges from fine-sand beaches at Elafonisi to the White Mountains. Among the most popular traditional desserts one can taste is xerotigana (ξεροτύγανα); a syrup-soaked dessert that is mostly given to weddings that symbolize joy and fertility.
Apart from the custom made favor box, a xerotigano was also placed on each guest’s plate as a warm and sweet welcome and we totally loved it!
PS: If you haven’t had the chance to try a xerotigano, next time you visit Crete make sure you do!
