Here is a very special traditional recipe for wild greens pie, called Kaltsounia from the village of Kremasti located in the Parnonas mountain range in the Lakonia prefecture. Sofia has kindly accepted to reveal her secret recipe for the first time. Sofia is the owner of Kremasti Restaurant located in the village. The wild greens are picked from ancient times from the surrounding mountains during the winter and left to dry away from direct sunlight. They are then served in their homes and in the village Restaurant all year round. Sofia and her family provide all the ingredients used from seed to final serving.

Αυτή είναι μια παραδοσιακή συνταγή της περιοχής του Πάρνωνα για μια τοπική χορτόπιτα του χωριού που αποκαλείται από τους ντόπιους Καλτσούνια. H συνταγή αυτή είναι ένα από τα πολλά μυστικά μακροβιότητας των κατοίκων της περιοχής. Η Σοφία που είναι ιδιοκτήτης του τοπικού εστιατορίου είχε την ευγένεια να μοιραστεί μαζί μας αυτά τα μυστικά. Τα άγρια χόρτα συλλέγονται από τους αρχαίους χρόνους από τα γύρω βουνά και αποξηραίνονται φυσικά με τοπικές ειδικές μεθόδους. Οι ντόπιοι τα λένε “αρμάδια” και τα χρησιμοποιούνε σε διάφορες συνταγές.

Peliti & Olympic Seed Festival
Alternative community and non-profit organization Peliti is a 100% voluntary and non-profit organization dedicated to local seed saving. Since 1995, the organization has worked for the protection of agricultural biodiversity, by collecting, cultivating and disseminating seeds of traditional varieties, as well as, by raising awareness in Greece and beyond.
The movement was founded by Mr Panagiotis Saitanoudis. Since its creation, Peliti has been organizing expeditions in Greece to collect seeds from traditional and local
varieties, trying to make them widely known and used all over Greece, to protect local biodiversity and enhance food sovereignty.
Peliti's activities target amateurs but also professional users, allowing them to get free samples of seeds from local varieties, to test on their lands. Targeting professional farmers and seed producers is the key point for regaining national and
sustainable food sovereignty.
