Rizes Greek Delicatessen

Rizes (roots) has sprung out of our deep love for tasty Greek food products made with the best raw materials. The choice of the name has not been an arbitrary one. It vests this undertaking with a double symbolism but points to a single direction, that of return. Return to the roots of Greek land, to our agricultural wealth, to our Greek agricultural products of exceptional quality and exquisite taste. Return to the roots of Greek cuisine, which is a pillar of Mediterranean diet. For us traditional products are the ones which are handmade with respect to traditional recipes or inspired by them with a more personal or modern approach, without the use of mechanical means, with exceptional quality raw materials but above all without the use of additives and conservatives. This is our definition of Greek delicatessen. We would therefore like to introduce ourselves as an artisan food family run and owned company of Greek delicatessen products. We cook with personal care and enthusiasm using 100% natural products. We use traditional and family recipes respecting the quality principles of Greek Mediterranean Diet.

Rizes Greek Delicatessen

Great density pastes, pâtés and sauces with sweet red pepper (of Florina) as their main ingredient. They are prepared during September and October when the peppers are ripe in Western Macedonia. The peppers are charcoal grilled, peeled, seeded by hand and, after they are ground, they simmer for hours in pots together with the rest of the ingredients. Extra virgin olive oil is used in all our recipes whose common characteristic is the unique smoked flavour of charcoal grilled pepper. The high degree of ingredient density, between 70% and 80%, makes the spreads special and brings out their taste and fragrance. Their ingredients and their preparation are based on traditional and family recipes from Florina and Pella. They are 100% natural and handmade without preservatives and industrially processed ingredients.
