Greek Vasilopita

Share

The Greek Vasilopita, which can be translated as Basil Pie or King’s Pie, is a traditional seasonal sweet bread that contains a hidden coin. On New Year’s Day, after a traditional big Greek holiday meal families cut the Vasilopita to bless the house and bring good luck for the new year. A piece of cake is sliced for each member of the family and guests usually in order of their age . They may include The Lord, Virgin Mary or other saints as well. The person who finds the coin in their slice of Vasilopita is believed to be going to have a New Year filled with good health & good fortune!
