Tsoureki – a Greek Easter sweet-bread traditionally given as a gift to family and friends but now eaten more regularly.

It is characterised by two particular ingredients: Mahleb – a spice obtained from the stone of the St Lucie cherry and native to the eastern Mediterranean region; and Mastika from the Greek island of Chios.

Tsoureki is good as a coffee/teatime or breakfast bread.
