Description & Origin

In the centre of Sfakia with its century long tradition of baking rusks, Niki and Markos have been running their wood oven bakery since 1973. Visitors of Sfakia never fail to visit their bakery which is known for their use of pure ingredients, their respect for tradition and love of their work which they inherited from their grandmother. Niki, considered by locals to be the ‘boss’ of the bakery, is a woman high temperament and a typical Sfakian flare which balances the calmness and politeness of her husband, Markos.

Every morning the centre of the village smells like fresh bread coming from their bakery where they also make authentic Cretan rusks as well as their own original dakos and biscuit recipes found nowhere else. They use extra virgin olive oil in their products and no preservatives whatsoever.

The basis of those biscuits is Cretan Graviera cheese, considered by many the most exquisite hard cheese in Greece. The Graviera cheese produced in Sfakia is made using milk from sheep and goats that wander freely on the rocky slopes of the White Mountains, eating the best herbs and grass the island has to offer. Those cheese bites are based on a original recipe by Niki and Markos and make a truly addictive experience. To be enjoyed with any Greek meze or simply as a snack.
