Hellmann’s is my favorite condiment brand, and this truffle mayonnaise is an indulgent twist on the classic hero product, the Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. This is a seriously rich and creamy mayonnaise with tiny pieces of truffle from Greek producers. The truffle aroma is not overpowering, but subtly rounds off the creamy, tangy taste. It is gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.
Hellmann’s truffle mayonnaise is the ideal spread for sandwiches as well as smoked salmon canapés, and a great accompaniment to chunky fries. You could also pair it with a chargrilled steak or a grilled cheese and mushroom toastie for an unforgettable culinary experience.
#Tip for the best ever grilled sandwich: Spread mayonnaise over top side of each slice of bread and then grill; this is key to a golden crunch!

From ear stacking to sparkling rings, everyday hoops and delicate bracelets, it’s the Greek brand to know right now for fine jewellery, that spark joy and won’t break the bank. The Rebirth collection is my favorite so far.
Here are some of my picks for something special for yourself or a gift for a loved one.
A selection of my favorite finds of the month, hoping to offer the inspiration you need.
THE COOKBOOK: ΔΕ ΚΟΥΚΜΠΟΥΚ by Madame Ginger
My goals for 2022 include to cook new recipes and to improve my gut health. So, in need of some fresh inspiration when it comes to incorporating more veggies and less meat, gluten and dairy into meals, as well as experimenting with nourishing ingredients, I bought The Cookbook.
A collection of 61 mouthwatering, easy, modern recipes with a twist, for everyone, written by the food blogger - writer Madame Ginger. My pick so far is her apple crumble with salted caramel, a gorgeous cake enriched with a caramel sauce made of dates
THE GADGET: SOUNDFORM Freedom Earbuds by belkin
They are my best friend this month taking convenience to another level! This newfound freedom they offer is handy when I walk, cook, exercise, meditate and do the housework. They stay in my small ears, deliver rich, radiant sound, offer up to 8 hours non-stop playtime, they are noise cancelling, sweat and rain resistant, never lost with Apple Find My app and they fit my budget.
THE STREET FOOD: Horns Urban Smokehouse BBQ
On the hunt for the perfect burger in the city, I came across Horns Smokehouse, an excellent addition to Thessaloniki’s street food scene.
Ditch the BBQ effort at home and head to Horns Smokehouse where slow-cooked, wood-smoked meats are a speciality. Think a Texan style meat mecca and expect to tuck into the likes of beef brisket, pork belly, pork spare ribs, comfort sandwiches and burgers.
