Gastronomy

 

From the earth and the sea comes a bounty of wonderful ingredients that have shaped the region's culinary traditions of Mediterranean cuisine.

Halkidiki is famous for its table olives, the high-quality olive oil, its fine breads and cheeses, as well as for its traditional sweets and pastries made with delicious local fruit of local production. The region is also well known for producing honey of the highest quality, while also being a location worth visiting due to its wine routes. This is the ideal place to enjoy the healthy recipes of the Mediterranean diet and savour dishes made from the purest and locally produced natural ingredients.

Whether is a cozy tavern or a gourmet restaurant, don't miss the opportunity to taste the fresh fish daily delivered from the local fisherman to your table, locally produced meat, fruits and vegetables that are cultivated in a natural way and of course, dishes flavored by herbs gathered from the surrounding hills.

 

(!) Special info:

The representative of the Guinness World Records, Jack Brockbank gave the certificate to the owner Ioannis Stathoris during the 21st International Exhibition of Food and Drinks Detrop. The cheese under the name “carprine rock” weighed 939 Kilograms!!
