Commemorated on September 11 / 24

According to Bishop Nikolai Velimirovch in The Prologue from Ohrid:

"Euphrosynus was a simple man, but a man of God. He served as the cook in an Amorean monastery in the ninth century. One night, the spiritual father of this monastery saw himself in Paradise, and saw Euphrosynus there as well. Euphrosynus picked and gave him three apples from Paradise. When the spiritual father awoke, he saw three unusually beautiful and fragrant apples by his pillow. He quickly found Euphrosynus and asked him: "Where were you last night, brother? I was where you were, father,'' the blessed God-pleaser replied. The spiritual father then revealed the entire incident to the monks, and all recognized the sanctity and godliness of Euphrosynus. But Euphrosynus, fearing the praise of men, immediately fled the monastery and hid in the wilderness, where he spent the remainder of his life."

It is an Orthodox tradition to display an icon of St. Euphrosynos (also translated St. Euphrosynus) in your kitchen where he is watching over the cook and reminding us all of the "food of Paradise."
