There are many churches and chapels throughout Kefalonia in honour of Ag. Georgios Tropaioforos. Especially worth noting are the St. Georgios celebrations in Davgata, Skala and Haliotata (at the family chapel of Father Anastasios Spathis).
Traditionally the dish of the day in Greece is Μπακαλιάρος σκορδαλιά (Bakaliaros skordalia), that is fried or boiled cod with skordalia (garlic dip). During the Great Lent, the Church allows Christians to eat fish on only two occasions : today and on Palm Sunday. Find the recipe here
