The name tsoureki comes from the Turkish word “corek” which refers to any bread made with yeast dough and is the traditional sweet yeast bread Greeks make every year on Holy Thursday, and eat on Easter Sunday.  It combines flavours of wild cherries and mahlepi and has a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Traditionally Tsoureki is eaten during the Resurrection Meal, after 40 days of fasting and symbolizes the Resurrection of Christ and rebirth in general as the flour is moulded into shape and rises and takes on life as it transforms into its final shape. The red-dyed egg which is usually placed on top of the braid symbolizes the blood of Jesus.
