almyrà

“Almyrà” is how we Greeks call our savory treats. They come in many different shapes and each housewife has her own little “secret” recipe to present.

For our almyrà biscuits we have been inspired by the praised pies (pita in Greek) of Epirus, which is located in the north-west part of Greece, between the mountain range of Pindos and the Ionian Sea.

ORIGIN

In the past, pita was the dominant element in the nutrition of the native nomad breeders, who had to survive on a little flour and what the surrounding nature provided them. Thus, they have become very imaginative with their pies and today there are endless alternative recipes.

Feta, the famous Greek PDO soft, white cheese, was an important ingredient and it was usually not missing from their pies.

Staying loyal to this tradition, all our almyrà biscuits contain Feta, enriched with various Greek herbs, spices and vegetables. The Petits Grecs almyrà range includes 4 different flavors: spinach & pumpkin seeds, paprika & chili pepper, marathon seeds & turmeric and olives & coriander seeds.
