A Greek family cannot sit down
for a meal without bread and olive oil!
Their daily supply of fresh
bread is as important as their homemade wine!
The morning ritual of
collecting the bread needs to be experienced. Our local bakery/kafenion is
in the village. "Just popping out for the bread darling," I
declare, as I stroll across
the road and join the busy comings and goings. The place is always full. After
ordering my usual Greek coffee, I join in on the conversation - usually a
bright mix of local politics, weather and gossip! On Sunday's, the baker does not bake! (He makes a double lot on Saturday.)
Instead of coffee, most drink whisky, ouzo or beer - and it is only 8am!
After about half an hour I
return home - sometimes having forgotten the bread! It is a great way to
start the day!

Loustri Bakery and Kafenion
Each village has its own
bakery which often doubles as the local coffee shop - a
Kafenion. This is the
case in our village. Chandos and his wife Nafsyka run the Bakery/Kafenion.
Chandos starts his day at 4am.
He uses traditional methods for bread making, including an olive wood oven!
