Kefalonia – Patisseries – Bakeries
It is almost certain that during your visit to Kefalonia, you will be tempted by the smells and images coming from the patisseries of the island! Traditional desserts, but also contemporary ones, influenced by European and American cuisine, invite you to try them!
In all the patisseries of Kefalonia, you will find typical local desserts:
• Mandoles: They look like candy, have a deep fuchsia – reddish color. They are roasted almonds coated with sugar and you will find them in various packaging in all the patisseries. There is also mandola with honey, that has a more natural brown color, but the traditional mandola is pink.
• Mandolato: Sugar, eggs, honey, chopped almonds, corn syrup and vanilla, blended and roasted to give this traditional sweet with the white color and the “hard” texture. It is packaged in slabs and you will also find it in all the patisseries.
• Pastelia: Local honey, usually thyme and local sesame are the components of pastelia from Kefalonia, which stand out just for that – for their first quality ingredients.
In the patisseries of Kefalonia, you will also find the famous galaktompoureko, local syrupy sweets (glyka tou koutaliou – ‘sweets of the spoon’), amygdalopita (almond pie), but also many popular desserts such as pastries, cakes and of course ice cream varieties!
