Living in our hillside village we can "Treat "ourselves daily as right on our door stop,
Christie's Cake Shop run by Kostas and Christina his wife, and named after her, just overflows - a Cornucopia - with a wonderful variety of mouthwatering and indulgent delights. Known in Greek as a Zacharoplastiro.
The heady smells of baking drift across the village tempting and inviting you to call in and just treat yourself to their freshly baked biscuits, cakes and sponges.
If your delight is chocolate, strawberry, walnuts, raisins, or just a simple sponge or all singing and dancing with whipped and/or fresh cream yummy too - they can do this for you......
Whether you are looking for a dessert to go with your meal, cheesecake being just one of my favourites, or a present for a Name Day celebration, you will find it here.
Cakes made to order for weddings, christenings and birthdays are their forte and can be prepared for you to your own design by Kosta and Christina whom also deliver to your preferred location.
Christmas time is especially busy with the baking of Melomakarona (Christmas Sweets) and the New Year's cake called Vasilopita - including the hidden lucky coin.
I have often purchased a gift basket for family and friends which includes along with the delicious treats, wine or if you prefer Presecco.
To find this great shop you should look out for their sign (picture above) or contact Kostas directly via email or a Facebook p.m.. Apart from very late in the evening I have never known their shop closed - it seems to be hive of baking almost 365 days of the year.
Their passion for baking and creating knows no ends....enjoy.
Well I better dash off to get some more cheesecakes for the weekend........!!!!!!!
