  Alexandra's pies
by mindcrime

To Paradosiako(the traditional) is a small store where the local buy daily things. Alexandra Nikolaidou is a friendly lady that informed us that she had some spoon sweets so we bought 2 big jars of fig sweet (8euro per jar).

Miss Alexandra is famous for her pies though, she can prepare one for you in 30’ so we told her that we will return after 2 hours to take the pie. She makes the traditional local pies, the Zagori pies are famous especially the alevropita or zimaropita but also veggiepie, mpatsaria, spinachpie, galatopita(milkpie), tsouknidopita(nettlepie), gkizopita, kolokithopita(pumpkinpie), trahanopita, kotopita(chickenpie), manitaropita(mushroompie)…

So when we returned she cut the pie in pieces and put it in a box so we had a lot of it even the day after back at Ioannina city. The cost of the pie is 15euros.

Buy the way when in Aristi you can also buy dairy products, chestnuts, walnuts, honey, mushrooms, jams etc
