Product History
Spoon- sweets are fruit or vegetables cooked and preserved in sugar syrup. Their name derives from the quantity of the sweet when served: it is as much as a teaspoon could fit! Even today, spoon- sweets are a traditional treat and the main treat to welcome a visitor in a Greek home. Either served with a glass of iced water and a cup of coffee, or over ice cream or yogurt, they are just delightful.

Goumenissa

In the heart of Macedonia, between two valleys, right where the prefectures of Pella and Kilkis are joined, rises mount Paiko, with its highest peak reaching 1.650 metres. Although it seems to be lacking in height, it most definitely stands out for its beauty. Dense areas of beech trees, oak and chestnut trees and lush vegetation, are split by rivers and fast-rushing streams going through, composing a wonderful and natural landscape. Known for its springs, Paiko is a fertile mountain that is perfect for fruit and vine growing. It is also famous for hosting the biggest chestnut tree forest in Greece. With a strong local character, stone-built houses and watermills, Goumenissa is home to a friendly population and it stands out for its culinary events, such as the "Chestnut Festival".
