The local cuisines of the countries or the different regions of a country always have something good and interesting to show no matter how famous they are. A typical example is Aegina. The local cuisine of the favorite island of Argosaronikos is based on its local product which is none other than the pistachio of Aegina. Below you will find three well-known recipes from Aegina slightly "teased", a salad, a main meal and a snack.
Aegina is known for its religious tourism and more. Those who deal with it probably know the Monastery of Panagia Chrysoleontissa which is the patron saint of the island. It celebrates on the 15th of August with the biggest festival of the island taking place there.
