Tasting the flavors of the Olympians.
Gastronomy in Pelion
According to the first definition by the famous French gastronome Jean-Adelmo Brigia-Savarin: “Gastronomy is the deep knowledge of everything relating to human consumption.” Share and enjoy with us the aromas that scavenge from the kitchens of Pelion houses. We invite you to experience, through our organized programs, the original Pelion cuisine with its unique and tasty dishes in traditional taverns with homemade recipes..
The “spetzofai” with green peppers and local Pelion sausage is arguably the most famous among them. Other popular dishes are the traditional Pelion bean soup called “soup” and the boiled goat meat, known as „Gida vrasti“.Most restaurants use local products and goodies straight from Pelion. Simple raw materials, such as mushrooms, chestnuts, walnuts, apples, ferns, edible greens and herbs are the basis for the unique taste combinations.
Start with us an exceptional trip in the gastronomy of Pelion.Taste at the end of the day, a delicious handmade sweet surprise! Finally, the wide variety of “spoon sweets”, the traditional cake and “baklava” will simply enchant you

Learning some recipes of the Kritsas’s Gastronomy Restaurant is priceless.
It was fun to cook with the Chef and team and learn the art of the cuisine of Pelion and the use of the aromatic herbs to make the difference in your dishes.
The atmosphere was very joyful and lively. The cooking class was very well organized.
We could eat after our own marvelous productions in a flowery garden.
It is a unique experience you won’t forget.
Back home, I was able to remake the dishes thanks to the precious recipes we received during the class.
If you are into the pleasure of good food, go for it, it is definitely a must-do..!
