Borakis Greek Foods
Sample a bit of Crete in you your own home.  Borakis Greek Foods, a small family business run by Yannis and Anne Borakis specialise in healthy natural foods that make up the Cretan diet.  In Crete, they use a lot of olive oil and use it in cooking, not just salads, it is even used in their cakes and pastries as well as cooking chips! It is more than a cooking oil, it is a flavouring ingredient.  This is the main reason why the Cretan diet is so healthy.

Yannis started importing his own olive oil from his father’s farm a barrel at a time and fairly soon friends who came to eat were asking if they could buy some.  He then decided to have it bottled and imported to the UK.

His family has been farming for generations in the White mountains of North-Western Crete.  After the success of the olive oil, he asked his uncle to send some of their traditional cheeses.  These are all produced from goat and sheep milk (no cows on Crete!) and hand-made according to traditional methods.  Then Yannis asked his brother who keeps bees to send over Cretan Thyme honey which has a strong flavour and it is much prized in Greece and around the world. Yannis and Anne will also be selling their infamous spinach pies ‘Spanakopita’ made from their delicious sheep cheese, and all pastry is made according to a traditional recipe using their Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Borakis Greek Food also offer a delivery service every Friday. Please contact them on info@borakisgreekfood.co.uk They also attend a few farmers markets every weekend: LintonSteeple Bumpstead, Impington and Shelford as well as the Ely Markets.
