This is kind of an awkward question, but I just started dating this girl from Kefalonia, Greece. And she keeps telling me about all of these amazing dishes that her family cooks that are specific to the village that she's from. Can any of you tell me what dishes are specific to Kefalonia? I would love to try them so I can impress here lol.

How sweet of you! Mandola is a traditional candy from Kefalonia and is probably one of the most popular exports. You probably will be able to find it in some Greek supermarkets, but it might be a little more niche. Try looking for it online, and maybe you can order it to your house. It would be really sweet to bring it to a get as a gift to her family's home, I'm sure they miss it.

The traditional meat pie from the region is so good. I like more meat-based dishes, which is why I even found out about this dish. It has the classic Greek meat spices like clove and Bayleaf. So tasty!


There's also a traditional candy on the island called Pastokidino that is made from Pistachios if you can find it. Also, the island is particularly known for its honey.

Hey everyone, I'm looking to find some small villages in Kefalonia to visit while I'm there. I really like to travel on the offbeat and path and get to know locals, is there anywhere I can do that on the island? I'm super adventurous and open to anything. The more authentic the better.
