Bread Baking Babes go Greek

It’s Greek Village Bread!

The actual name is horiatiko psomi, pronounced hoh-ree-AH-tee-koh psoh-MEE.

A side comment… why do Mediterranean languages like to start words with a P + consonant combo’ – and pronounce it? Saying ‘sp’ is easy (for us) but ‘ps’ is not. And the French have ‘pn’ (a tire is ‘pneu’) which is next to impossible for some of us to say properly.

Back to the bread:

According to Elle, of Feeding My Enthusiasms, and our host Kitchen for March, this is “a fairly simple, but delicious Greek Village Bread – Horiatiko Psomi – which is enriched with milk and butter and is baked in a pot.”

This is a bread that is found everywhere in Greece, makes great sandwiches and better toasts.

Oh – and it’s easy.

What more could one ask for?

If you want to try your hand at this crusty loaf head over to Feeding My Enthusiasms.
