Η παράδοση μας
There, the young man Vassilis KordelidIs begins his career and he initially works as a salesman. With his persistence, stubborness and the ability of the self-made man he manages to achieve his goals and to make his own first little chocolate artisanship! His love and passion for the chocolate product led him to great
In the ‘70s he moves permanently to Athens with his wife, Efimia, and manages to get even closer to his dream.
Together, the two of them, open the Palet patisserie in the southern suburbs of Athens, emphasizing on the chocolate production, and equip it with the best machinery from Switzerland and Germany.
His perfectionism and know-how from Constaninople were and still remain the cornerstones of our philosophy both for the selection of fresh, natural ingredients and the always perfect result of our products.
He taught us to rely on these principles, and this is how we have been operating so far, always bearing his words in our minds: “the negotiation with suppliers is always for the perfect product, never for the price!”
Today, Palet remains our favourite family affair and its target is to make handmade pastries to suit any taste requirement.
Handmade, fresh products are daily created by ourselves using only high quality, pure ingredients and, most importantly, avoiding mass production. Moreover, not only we are constantly following the developments regarding the art of confectionery but also we are continually experimenting with the new trends, enriching our flavours and of course renewing the combinations of our ingredients. Every day, with undiminished love and passion, we plan delicious pleasures that will satisfy even our most demanding customer.
Chocolate was the reason everything started 40 years ago! Vasilis Kordelidis loved it so much and passionately and wanted to create it himself, with his own recipe, in order to be truly real!
Palet became the place (home) of this great love. Having been equipped with the best German production machines of the time, the creation started!!
Nothing has changed since then as far as our love for chocolate is concerned. Palet was and still remains the unique patisserie in Greece that has a chocolate production unit.
The quality of our pure ingredients is our primary and non-negotiable concern. We choose to import cocoa mass (beans) and butter, selectively, from Netherlands and France respectively, countries with a long tradition in the quality of these specific ingredients through the years.
The ingredients are mixed in our machines for 96 hours until a homogenized final mixture emerges, ready to be mixed with the experience, knowledge, taste and love of our secret family recipe.
The values of trust, sincerity, authenticity and respect for the customer are a priority for us! These are the basis of our operation so many years in the field of confectionery and only with them we want to continue to gain more loyal friends every day.
