Product History
Pasteli is a Greek traditional type of nougat based on sesame and honey, known and loved since ancient times. The basic recipe for pasteli with honey indicates that the honey should be boiled and then mixed carefully with sesame seeds to tie in well together. After the mixture is formed, it's left to cool down and then cut into pieces. Pasteli is ideally restorative and nutritious, as it contains vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. Pastelis are distinguished between soft-boiled and crispy (if sesame seeds are dominant). Today, there can be found several variations with nuts, dried fruit, etc.

Mousseti

In the region of Taxiarchis in Northern Evia, Ourania Mouseti has, for the past 7 years, a home-based industry for the processing of figs. The region is famous for the quality of its figs and Ourania Mouseti takes advantage of this highly nutritious fruit, in the best possible way. She carefully picks the figs from her own fig orchards, dries them in the sunlight in a natural way, by spreading them out on wooden planks. She then packs them, or makes "sykomaides" and fig nougat with honey.
