Donuts, churros, beignets, every culture has some version of fried dough and Greeks are no exception. True to most mediterranean fare, even these decadently fried dough balls are somewhat nutritious with the addition of copious amounts of honey and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon. The first time I tried these crispy dough puffs, my mother-in-law had prepared a hefty batch, which she placed in a large bowl in the center of the table. As we each ate a dozen, we shared stories and laughs, instilling a sense of communal celebration and indulgence. The spirit of celebration and whimsey remains today, and I even at times find myself modifying the recipe from honey and cinnamon to maple syrup and vanilla ice cream, a divine combination! Regardless of how you choose to top your loukoumades, they will most definitely impart joy and lightheartedness to those at the table.
