Vasilopita 2019 - Greek New Year Tradition

Happy New Year from Asimina Tours! 

Every New Year, like most Greek families, we bake a Vasilopita. In English, this translates to "Basil-Pie" celebrating Saint Basil's Day on January 1st. A coin is baked inside, hidden until the cake is sliced. On New Year's day, the cake is cut to bless the house and bring good luck in the new year. A piece is cut for each family member and friends visiting for New Years, usually starting with the eldest. The person who finds the coin will have good luck throughout the new year! 

Here is a picture of our cake for 2019!
