Give me more. Cretan snacks that will have you uttering these three words. Buy them for your guests, eat them on your own.

These biscuits are a Greek masterpiece. Made with local ingredients from the island, they are immaculately balanced. It really feels like thousands of years of perfecting has gone into the making. Crisp but not dry. Sweet but not sickly. Everything is in proportion, including the sesame seeds which make you think, and say out loud, "give me more".

The rusks (baked and dried bread slices) are very much the same, a modern incarnation of a product that clearly has years of history behind it. Each piece is savoury, perfectly seasoned and just as more-ish as its biscuit brothers.

A long overdue celebration of the Greek grandma. Wherever you might be from, Yiayia and friends is all about the loving grandmother we all know or remember.

Yiayia in Greek means grandmother. The woman that rises before the sun. The woman that always has work to do. The woman who knows how to heal, to explain, to predict. The woman who knows how to grow children into men and women. This is the person that manages to do the things that bring joy and life to us all. She is special and she is loved. She is Yiayia, and now she is joined by her friends. Together they make the raw products she loves.
