Archontiko Papadopoulou at Kornos village aims at presenting and promoting Cypriot cultural heritage related to gastronomy, wine and pottery art of Kornos. It is based in a traditional restored house with architectural and morphological features of neoclassical style. Dating back to 1897, it is one of the few houses of its type and era in the region that have survived over the years.
Archontiko Papadopoulou is multi-purpose building that houses a variety of activities, revolving around wine-gastronomy and ceramic art. In particular, Archontiko Papadopoulou includes a high-level Cypriot cuisine ala-carte restaurant, a coffee shop, a cafeteria, a wine cellar, a Commandaria bar, a shop selling traditional Cypriot products, a library and a pottery workshop open to all visitors.
After many years of thorough research into old, traditional, forgotten recipies, today the Archontikon Papadopoulou proudly presents a high-level, upgraded Cypriot cuisine. The Culinary Team of Archontiko Papadopoulou has revived these recipies, while at the same time maintaining the authenticity of the old, traditional, Cypriot cooking, within a modern framework of haute cuisine, and using only first-grade, fresh and traditional Cypriot products. Everything is cooked in extra virgin olive oil and flavoured with freshly-picked Cypriot herbs.
Archontiko Papadopoulou uses only traditional, fresh ingredients of Cyprus (free range chicken and domestic meat), which are cooked in virgin olive oil and freshly picked Cyprus herbs. The cultural center encloses a new pottery studio, library, shop (the old grocery store), Commandaria bar, cafeteria and a wine cellar.
The cellar houses the oldest Commandaria found today in Cyprus, dating back to more than one hundred (100) years. The forgotten Commandaria was discovered in a concentrated form in a clay urn. It is considered one of the leading wine discoveries of the last century, both from a historic and scientific point of view. Part of the concentrated substance was recently restored by the Department of Agriculture (Viticulture and Oenology Section), Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Recourses and Environment.
