a healthy speciallity from the mediterranean area..

Chickpeas, in other countries mostly served in oriental localities are a nutritious delicacy here in the mediterranean area.

The chickpeas are cooked very gently so that their high mineral content of magnesium, iron and zinc doesn´t get lost. These are simmered together slowly in a spicy sauce with fresh tomatoes. A little bit of olive oil underlines the smooth flavor of the local herbs.

Our chickpeas are a popular vegetarian dish.

Balls made of cheese

“a taste explosion on your tongue..”

Something very special are our traditional balls made out of cheese, a well kept secret of our family.

It is very complicated to create these cheese balls. Three different types of cheese have to be combined in exact proportions. Now the cook has to find the different melting points of this cheese sorts to get a homogeneous mixture. It gets refined with native spices and finally fried. The result is a very special taste experience that is available nowhere else.

“a rare bean as greek speciallity..”

“Gigantes” are greek giant beans which grow in the mediterranean. They are only cultivated in three areas of the world.

What most people only know from Bud Spencer and Terence Hill movies is an often cooked main dish in greece. We bake our Gigantes according to a traditional recipe with various vegetables, fresh herbs, spices and olive oil. So we get a wonderfull smooth dish. Together with a slice of bread, a glass of red wine. Welcome to a greek mediterranean western.

Feta cheese from oven

“the greek slice of cheese..”

The feta (greek word for slice) cheese has a big tradition in Greece too. It has been valued since 1494 for it´s intense and spicy flavor. The feta cheese is produced relatively fast. It only has to mature within two months in the typical Salt Lake to complete. And so the feta went on to his victorious march through Europe from the past until the widespread usage of today.

Of course we only use real feta cheese from pure sheep milk. You can taste this significant difference by the higher fat content and of course by the herb taste. Our feta from oven gets refined with our good olive oil and local herbs. Afterwards it gets gently baked. The result is a firm but gentle melting cheese, which flows over your tongue and unfolds the rhodian spices.
