Available now, to make your holidays a bit easier, homemade, authentic, traditional Greek Vasilopita or St. Basil’s Bread, available for shipment to any address in the continental United States.
The staple dessert in every Greek home during the holidays and particularly on New Years Eve and Day, Vasilopita is commonly shared amongst family members and always contains a hidden coin.
As a piece is cut for every family member, the slice that contains the coin will bring the one person good luck for the whole year. The tradition behind this special cake dates back centuries and is a beautiful story to be shared with family and friends during the holidays.
This special vasilopita is available from the Olive Grove Market which has partnered with Pi Bakerie in SoHo, one of New York City’s most celebrated Greek bakeries. Pi is owned by the same proprietors of the iconic Artopolis Bakery in Astoria that has sold the most traditional Greek baked goods for decades.
Pi Bakerie’s traditional Vasilopita recipe has been passed from one generation of Greek bakers to the next, providing a taste of Greece to countless families. Ingredients are 100% organic and each Vasilopita is made to order, by the hands of expert bakers.
To partake in the tradition, Vasilopita cakes will include a replica of a traditional Gold Lyra coin and will be shipped in a protective box, guaranteed to arrive fresh, in time for New Year’s Eve.
The Vasilopita is offered in three sizes and on a pre-order basis. All orders must be placed by midnight EST, December 17, 2020. Click here to order.
