Ever wonder how your mom or grandmother’s braided Greek Easter bread comes out so perfect and yours… not so perfect?
There’s got to be a secret they have and won’t share, right?
Greek celebrity chef Akis Petretzikis lets the cat out of the bag and actually shows his own tip on how to make the perfect 4-layered braided tsoureki and even provides a cheat-sheet on the video.
And his recipe is quite amazing too, blending all fo the traditional tastes, like mastiha and cardamon, but also using honey.
Here’s the video. Scroll down for the link to Akis’ fill recipe page in English.
