    Ask Leonardo: Pray than eat

    by Assenczo Written Mar 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For the gourmet fans I have to recommend the monasteries as the equivalent of a full board accommodation. Dinner is early; guests eat with the monks and follow their rules by listening to a lecture from the Bible about the life of a particular saint. After salivating for 15 min. or so the meal tastes even better. Not to mention the wine. Monastery wine has the reputation of something utterly original and historical notes suggest that for long period of time during the Middle Ages monasteries were the main production outlets. This gives the impression that monastery wine is something exquisite and never to be missed. Well, let’s presume that tastes change with time. I have no other justification for the total disarray my senses were in after I sniffed and then sipped the wine. The smell suggested the sweetest wine on Earth while the taste was as sour as one could imagine. Still, this wine might win a competition; for original touch at least.

    many of the monastaries: Welcome treat at monastaries

    by phil219 Written Aug 22, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As a small welcome treat the monastaries might offer a combination of the following:

    - a greek coffee (very strong, similar to espresso)

    - a shot (raki?, at least some small, strong alcoholic drink, tastes a little bit like ouzo)

    - a glass of water

    - lukomi (sweet gelatine quaders, treated with confectionaries sugar so that it doesn't stick)

    Except for the water all three things are really a special treat that you might not have experienced before. If you get really lucky, they serve you in a monastery all four things at once, just enjoy them side by side...
