This happens every August around the 7th. Eglouvi means encased which makes total sense when you visit the village as it’s down in a valley surrounded by hill on all sides. The lentils are well known for there unique creamy texture.
The Greeks love their food as you all know so an excuse to celebrate it is always a good idea. There exported all over the world.
I unfortunately haven’t attended this festival because neither me nor my husband drive and it’s been years since we visited in August. It’s a bit too crowded with what seems like the entirety of Italy and Greece’s admin service visiting on their month off.
This village doesn’t appear to have a Wikipedia article as it’s so small but there are other tourist websites out there that will tell you about previous ones.
Do you have any special foods and ceremonies in your country that we should know about?
I like making series and connecting my posts together so that they make sense to you the viewer and reader. This is part of my rural Lefkás village series.
Other series include Greek poets, authors, Musicians, Famous Greeks and Foreigners who have become interested and or benefited Greece in some ways. All the links can be found here Series links.
