We are happy to announce that our company V. & V. KANATAS G.P. has the right, according to the EU regulations, to bottle our own extra virgin olive oil in our facilities in Delphi.
Since the beginning of March we have been provided with the special alphanumeric code from the Ministry of Development. This code is given in accordance with the EU Directive on the bottling of olive oil.
In our constant effort to make better products, we also managed to certify the process of Extra Virgin Olive oil bottling through the internationally recognized certificate ISO 22000:2005.

Old recipe from Amfissa – Delphi

• 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
• ¾ cup of olive oil
• 1 lemon (juice)
• 2 eggs
• salt and freshly ground pepper
Cooked in 2 versions:
1. Wash the meat and cut into very small portions 20-30 g.
Put in a saucepan heat the oil and sauté the meat a bit more than normal.
Add water to cover the meat. Put the garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.
Half-cover the pot and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes until the liquid becomes porridge. Finally add the lemon and serve.
2. Alternatively stir 2 eggs with lemon in a separate bowl (don’t add lemon on the previous step). Add slowly 5-6 spoons of the porridge in the eggs and lemon mixture.
This procedure is called “avgolemono” in Greek kichen. When the “avgolemono” is warm enough from the porridge flood it into the pot and serve.

We are happy to announce that the new harvest has just began in the area of Delphi on November 25, 2018. This year we had to wait until the end of November because of the warm weather. The olives are already matured and harvested by hand and with the special equippement for this work.
The olive oil of this year is really tasty. It has an early harvesting olives aroma with a light bitter aftertaste because it is very fresh. Later in the season it will become milder and sweeter!
With our best regards from Delphi
