Rusks


Rusks or paximadia are pieces of twice-baked bread that's dried up in the oven and can be enjoyed for a long time. Wholegrain rusks are dry and dense and may need a little soaking if you're not familiar with their texture. They are extremely rich in fiber and can benefit cardiovascular health because they absorb fatty acids like nobody's business. Rusks are usually used in salads, where they bind flavors and soak up all the good stuff. You can add them in Greek salad, in soups, serve them with soft cheeses and dips, or try the traditional Cretan Dakos!
