Revani (or ravani) is the traditional dessert of Veria, famous throughout Greece. Syrup that urged the people of Thessaloniki to organize getaways to Veria to taste it, is being made for over a century in the city and is a key gastronomic element for its visitor.
It is produced and served in Veria with the same recipe from the time of the Ottoman Empire, and from then it is sold in the restaurants of Veria. It can be made with coconut and is eaten plain or with ice cream, which completely changes the experience and takes it to the next level. In any case, few can request a revani, without adding “Veria” to their order!
