Terkenlis now at The Greek Deli

Tsoureki is a traditional Greek bread characterized by its braided shape. It is a staple in Greek meals enjoyed by fans of all ages. It is customary to eat Tsoureki at Easter but due to its health benefits and delicious taste, it has become a breakfast option for many and a regular bake for bakers up and down the country.

But what is tsoureki you may ask, and why do all Greeks insist you try some when you visit?

Tsoureki has been prepared in Greece since ancient times and is traditionally served at the breaking of Lent. Terkenlis’ secret recipe is based on the selection of pure raw materials and their love for what they have done for 70 years old.

Tsoureki is effectively a braided type of bread that looks and tastes very similar to brioche. You will tend to find this in either a circular form or elongated like a loaf. Tradition says that tsoureki should be braided in three strands – one for each aspect of the Trinity. The bread is usually made with milk, eggs, butter, and flavourings such as mahleb, orange zest, cardamom, and vanilla. Its easy taste, which goes well with everything (including coffee), has made it so popular that it is enjoyed all year round. “Terkenlis” is one of the most famous brands for tsoureki in Greece, their secret recipe is based on the selection of pure raw materials and an over 70-year love for making tsoureki.

Confectionery “Terkenlis” was founded in 1948 by Stavros Terkenlis. The first historic shop was created at the intersection of Tsimiski and Aristotelous streets and is operational until today. All Terkenlis Tsoureki is freshly prepared in the Terkenlis workshop in Greece, imported to the UK by The Greek Deli, and delivered to your door across the UK.
