When Love Becomes Food and Sharing

Updated: Sep 2

A group of 15 individuals, 15 different strangers to me, visited this beautiful olive grove where I had the privilege to stay. My way to express my joy and welcome them was by making a dessert, sharing it with them, and telling them its story, which perhaps contained a bit of mine. I spoke to them about the ancient Greeks and their preparation before the Olympic games. I felt proud of my heritage, and through taste, I felt like I conveyed some of Greek glory. My friend had crafted an olive wreath and gave it to our guide, an incredible person who loved what she did and showed it in every step. And in this way, these unknown people became known through a story and a dessert!
