    Rusk is a type of whole wheat biscuit that is very hard and crunchy....just look up "Greek whole wheat rusk biscuits" on the internet. They don't sell them in regular supermarkets....only in Greek specialty stores or you can order off the internet.

    This should go to "bye-bye waistline" Hall of Fame :) - it looks soooooooooooooooo good! I grew up in Odessa, which is your neighbor over the Black Sea. Our cuisine was very much influenced by Greeks. I may try this one... Thanks for posting great stuff from Yiayia :)
