At Elona Foods, we always bake with simple and natural ingredients. Whether it be the buttery taste of the original cookie or the delightful combination of olive oil and spice of our cinnamon cookie, the Koulouraki can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere. Dunk it in your morning coffee or tea, grab it as a quick snack, or indulge in an after-dinner treat.
The Koulouraki is a Greek staple and is recognized for its unique shape and light buttery taste. Just like the bakeries in Greece, we twist each individual koulouraki by hand. Elona Foods is proud to bring this tradition and classic cookie to the United States. Sit back, relax, and savor the Cookie with a Twist.
It all started when our Yiayia (grandmother), Antonia Komianos, moved to the United States from Greece in 1961. She had grown a love for baking and spent years perfecting her traditional Greek recipes. Her signature recipe, however, was the koulouraki as it reminded her of home. For many years, the koulouraki was a staple item at every family event. Our Yiayia then shared the koulouraki cookies with all her friends in the United States, and to no surprise they all loved them.
Her daughter and son-in-law, Anna and Evan Tsellas, together with her grandchildren, Niko and Irini Tsellas, did not want to keep this delicious treat to themselves and wanted to share the koulouraki for all to enjoy. The koulouraki is for everyone, as a “grab n’ go” or as a treat to serve family and friends at home. Our goal is to continue our grandmother’s vision of sharing Greek foods with all and keeping her tradition alive.
Enjoy the koulouraki just as it has been enjoyed for years in our family!
