Making Christopsomo- Christmas Bread

I will be traveling to Greece this Christmas and I want to make some Christopsomo to give to my family when I go. I have never made it and want to run something by you - do these ingredients look right? It looks very similar to tsoureki to me but with a lot of spices. I am also nervous there's too much flour in the recipe.

- 8 cups or so of all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 package of dry yeast
- 1 1/2 tsp of salt
- 1 cup of warm water
- 1 cup of milk
- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp of nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp of ground cloves
- 1/2 cup of honey

Local cuisine to try in Kefalonia?

I believe that one of the best ways to experience a new place is through its food, as it tells so much about its culture and traditions.

I've heard that Kefalonia boasts a vibrant culinary scene, with a variety of dishes that are as stunning as the island's landscapes. From fresh seafood to delightful sweets, I'm looking forward to tasting everything this gem in the Ionian Sea has to offer.

That being said, I would love to get your recommendations on the must-try local dishes and beverages in Kefalonia. Are there any particular restaurants, tavernas, or street food spots that left an impression on you?

What to do in Corfu for couples?

My partner and I are planning a romantic getaway to Corfu, Greece, and we're looking for some insider tips on the best experiences for couples. We've heard so much about Corfu's natural beauty and rich history, but we're hoping to tailor our itinerary to include activities that are especially romantic.

We're open to anything, whether it's relaxing on secluded beaches, exploring charming villages, enjoying candlelit dinners with stunning views, or embarking on adventurous excursions together. Ideally, we'd love to find a balance between leisurely, romantic moments and exciting adventures that we can share as a couple.

If you were us, what would you do while on the island?
