Today we bake Lagana bread and fly kites to mark the beginning of 40 days of Orthodox Lent. Lagana bread is a flat bread made once a year.
We are selling Lagana Break fresh baked from Athans Bakery.

“Lagana is a traditional flatbread usually baked for Clean Monday (Καθαρά Δευτέρα) or Kathara Defthera, the first day of Great Lent before Easter. For those fasting most strictly, lagana is made without oil. For those less strict, olive oil is used and never any dairy products. Sesame seeds are the most common topping and often fresh or dried herbs are added for even more flavor. I like to go with black and white sesame seeds and flavor my dipping oil with thyme or rosemary.”
