Greek Independence Day, national holiday celebrated annually in Greece on March 25, commemorating the start of the War of Greek Independence in 1821. It coincides with the Greek Orthodox Church’s celebration of the Annunciation to the Theotokos, when the Archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary and told her that she would bear the son of God.
Baklava Rolls (Sourota)_In honor of Greek Independence Day, we decided to make one the most famous and traditional Greek desserts we could think of... baklava! And were not talking just regular run-of-the-mill baklava in a pan or in triangles, which is typically how you will find it. We made baklava rolls! Baklava rolls are known as sourota in Greece. It makes eating the baklava easy and fun.
