Home Larder Herbs & Spices Mahlepi


Mahlepi, also known as Mahleb or Mahlab, is a delicious aromatic spice made from the seed kernels of the Mahleb cherry and it is a mainstay of many Greek and middle eastern dishes. You could not make Tsoureki or Vasilopita breads without its unmistakable flavour, which is both floral and bitter, and it also imparts a slight chewiness to bakes. It has the texture and appearance of ground almonds and can be used a bit like nutmeg and sprinkled sparingly into pastry doughs, frangipane mixes or milk puddings. It also works well to season lamb.

Fotsis, Athens, Attica

Fotsis is the oldest spice shop in Athens. In 1930, it introduced Eastern herbs and spices to Greece, importing many products that were new to Greek palates. Fotis Tsironis' grandson George now runs the business, continuing his family’s legacy, and Fotsi remains a household name in Greece after so many years.
