    Greek recipes reflect the abundance of the nut trees of Greece.

Of all the nuts the almond is the most nutritious. Used in cakes, candies and in the most famous of all pastries, baklava. For centuries it has been used as the symbol of fertility and good fortune and ancient custom still obliges the host to distribute almonds at weddings and christenings. Chestnut trees grow in many places but there is a chestnut forest in the town of Tsangaradha, outside of Volos in Pelion, that is an experience to drive through. When in season street vendors sell roasted chestnuts everywhere. Hazelnuts and filberts are roasted and eaten fresh or lend their special flavor to many cake and pastry recipes. Pistachios, grown in Aeghina in the Argosaronikos Islands off the shores of Attica, are the peanuts of Greece, and are nibbled on at all hours of the day.
