It’s wonderful that in Paleochori locals still cook and fry delicious “tsigaridia” and potatoes in the extra virgin olive oil of Megali Panagia.
It is a great value, a precious data for Greece – to fry in such an olive oil, like that of Eastern Halkidiki.
In our country (of the olive tree), olive oil is the most important national product: its bitterness, the delicious spiciness of its taste and all its complex aromatic elements add up to a boon. Olive oil played a key role in the history and culture of the ancient Greeks. It was a staple of their diet, as the Greeks ate a lot of bread dipped into oil. Today in Palaiochori, the “”Momogeri Dancers”” from Veria / Macedonia, dance around the bonfires, where the fried potatoes sizzle and the ancient Greek event of gastronomy and culture begins! A special celebration: for the few and selected!”
