Greek Orthodox religion, koliva is a dish that is heavy with ritual significance. It’s more metaphor than food, really, symbolizing the circle of death and rebirth. The wheat berries represent the promise of everlasting life, the raisins the sweetness of life, and the spices are symbols of plenty. The dish is traditionally served only in a few specific circumstances, including the beginning of Lent, and during memorial services.
