Greek Bread Stamp

Greek Bread Stamp in Display Case

'I make bread. My mum always made it. Special bread made with just flour, water, a tiny bit of salt and yeast, but no oil, is called prosforo and goes to the altar. The priest gets a little bit of it and puts it in the wine. We put candles in another bigger loaf with oil in it. Some people will do this on other days as well. It's a form of remembrance to have the bread and the candles.' Joanna

This bread stamp belonged to Niki's mother. Niki uses it to mark bread and biscuits she makes at Easter, Christmas and for Independence Day celebrations.
