Mount Athos Bread

Ingredients:
1 kilo of whole-wheat flour
2 kilos white flour
Yeast or fresh yeast 1.5 tsp
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
Lukewarm water (as much as it needs)

Instructions:
From the previous night, put in a bowl the yeast and some lukewarm water and flour, so it will be like porridge. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and leave it in a warm place to rise. In the morning, sift the flour into a bowl, make a hole in center and pour inside the broth with the yeast. If you make bread with fresh yeast, you do not have to prepare it overnight. Just dissolve the yeast in some lukewarm water and add   flour. Add the appropriate amount of lukewarm water in the basin, in which you have dissolved the salt and knead well until it becomes a medium dough. The dough should not stick to your hands. Split the dough in oiled molds and put them in a warm place, covered with a clean towel. When the dough doubles in size, it is ready for the oven. Carve with a sharp knife the surface and bake in the oven for about an hour.

Wines of Mount Athos: the Secret behind Monastery Wine...since the 10th century!

Wine, as a blessed commodity, plays a predominant role in the life of the Athonite monasteries. The founder of the monastic state of Mount Athos, Saint Athanasius the Athonite, decreed that each monastery should have its own vineyards. Thus, since the 10th century, the founders of the monasteries, recognizing the value of wine, have numerous vineyards in their monastic properties. On Mount Athos, there were no large areas for grain, due to the geographical difficulty and the wildness of the place. However, the microclimate of Mount Athos as well as its special vineyards, are key factors for a distinct wine production, unique throughout the Balkan Peninsula and the Northern Aegean. Even today, a number of monks from each monastery are in charge of the cultivation of vineyards and the production of wine.
