Cinnamon was imported to Egypt from China and Southeast Asia sometimes around 2000 B.C.E. In Greece, we call it kanela (κανέλα) and you can find it in every cafe and restaurant. Kanel is one of those spices that have a unique position in Greek homes. Typically, it is connected with sweets. Furthermore, it is also used in just about any dish, especially those containing fatty meat. Additionally, the use of cinnamon in savoury dishes relays on the family recipes and the specific region in Greece.
