A friend of mine highly recommended the Russian Easter Cake Kulich, so I brought it in a Russian supermarket in London.

After I sliced it, I realise it really looks like Italian panettone during Christmas season. But it’s much drier.

In Italy, people eat Colomba di Pasqua for Easter, it means “Easter Dove” in English.

I also brought another Easter bread/cake, it’s called Flaounes, from a Cypriot bakery shop. Made with raisins and goat cheese inside, also be garnished with sesame seed.

I like bread in general, I also love cheese, so this pastry is a perfect combination thereof.

My Greece colleague told me in Greek, their traditional Easter cake named Tsoureki. It is a type of sweet bread made with olive oil and orange juice. I really wish I could know that earlier, now I have to wait for next Easter to try it.
