Hand Made Sfakian Oat Rusks
These hearty Cretan rusks are hand-made the traditional way with oat, wheat, and barley flours. Excellent with salads, soups and stews or as a snack or appetizer with cheese or our delicious spoon sweets. They are large, about the size of small dinner rolls, craggy and crusty and they break apart easily. They have a robust, earthy flavor.
The Dourountakis sisters make their delicious rusks from recipes passed down from their grandmother, who came to the area of Sfakia from Samaria, the dramatic gorgeon the western side of Crete, as a young lady to be married. She often told them: "If you want, my children, to do something good, do it with your hands." They followed her advice and make their rusks by hand, with natural ingredients and no preservatives. Preserving the traditional flavors of Sfakia.
