Greeks love to eat yogurt with thyme-scented honey spooned on top as a mid-morning or late-night snack.

Proper Greek yogurt is deliciously thick and creamy and has a lacy crust on top.

The best yogurt i have ever tasted was on Crete, and it is well worth seeking out if you visit the island.

It is one of the simplest pleasures in the world.
