Yiayia's food Gift Box:
✻ “Trahanas” Traditional Pasta with Vegetables (400gr)
Trahana is one of the oldest foods in the Eastern Mediterranean, a tiny, pebble-shaped grain product that varies widely all over Greece. Trahana is an ancient food that fewer and fewer country cooks bother to make at home. But Greeks still love it and as a result a litany of regional artisan producers, mainly women’s cooperatives, have stepped in to fill a market demand. Thanks to them the tradition is surviving.
In this gift box you will find a 400gr package of “Trahanas” with vegetables made in Crete, from white flour, whole wheat flour and vegetables, with no preservatives.
If you prefer sweet “Trahanas” made from sheep’s milk, white flour and whole wheat flour, instead of the vegetables’ option, please ask us for availability in the order’s comments.

Following the techniques and the tradition of their ancestors, the modern people of Crete, especially in the villages, express their creativity by making objects of excellent quality. Ceramic is still the basic occupation of many inhabitants, who make not only decorative pottery but also utensils.
✻ Greek Lucky Eye Bracelet
In Greece there is a belief that Matiasma will cause misfortune or injury. Matiasma means “evil eye” in Greek, and is often shortened to mati which means “eye”. The classic Greek “lucky eye” symbol charm aims to ward off the effects of the Matiasma. Blue charms shaped like eyes worn on a necklace or a bracelet “reflect” the evil. The lucky eye is the most commonly talked about ancient tradition in the Greek Isles. Celebrate Greek culture with a Greek lucky eye bracelet in the blue and white colours of the Greek flag.
