Patrikon. A word that holds within it our entire childhood. Our family home, where we grew up and lived with our parents. The place where we created our first memories and had our first taste experiences.
A word that also carries the knowledge and wisdom of our ancestors. They considered food to be part of philosophy, medicine and the human spirit. They therefore chose simple and select foods.
We at Patrikon have a vision. To create flavours that will take you on a journey back to your childhood, while offering you all the nutrients you need based on the dietary culture of our ancestors.
We have been producing and selling traditional Greek products for over 20 years. Driven by our love for Greek soil and its treasures, we select the purest and most nutritious ingredients for all our products.
The story of our pasteli goes far back to the first ascetic monks who combined honey and sesame seeds to make "sisamis", a nutritious and delicious sweet that occupied an important position in their daily diet. A diet that protected them and granted them longevity.
This simple recipe of the first monks, enriched with valuable taste secrets, was entrusted to the people of Patrikon by the Fathers of the Holy Monastery of Makariotissa, with love and respect to tradition. Inspired by their love for the earth and their fellow men and women, the monastery's monks create the purest delicacy that nature has to offer.
And so we created the finest handmade Melichio pasteli bars with the purest honey from Mount Helicon, mixed with nutritious and wholesome sesame seeds.
We have added ingredients to this basic recipe that make our pasteli bars unique. Cinnamon, the spice with the magical properties, antioxidant Aegina pistachios and black sesame seeds, rich in calcium, minerals and vitamins.
