Athonite Loukoums and Monastic Hospitality
Loukoums are an integral part of the Greek tradition. Many generations have grown up with their favorite sweet being interwoven with their family moments.
Loukoums, however, are closely related to monastic hospitality. In the monasteries of Mount Athos and in most of the monasteries all over Greece, the first thing the visitors will taste, as soon as they enter the monastery’s place for the guests, is a loukoum. Together with a glass of water and a Greek coffee, Loukoums are the most traditional monastic treasure.
We meet them in all the monasteries of Orthodoxy and, along with the smile of the monks, sweeten the visitors who reach tired, physically and psychologically, to them. They do not contain fat and can be consumed throughout the year. Together with the preserves, loukoums are among the most popular sweets during the fasting periods.
Plain, but delicious, Athonite Loukoums, along with their sweetness, offer to those who taste them a sense of tranquility.
