Recipes

Distinct among the local specialties is patatato (goat casserole in tomato sauce), which apart from traditional taverns you will also find it to be served at local festivals and other events such as weddings and baptisms.

Very good too is also the local red semi-sweet wine and raki that locals serve with dried figs.

On celebration days they offer xerotigana (dumplings with honey) and pasteli
(the traditional sweet of the Cyclades, made of sesame seeds and honey).

Aranista

Place the flour in a large bowl, add water gradually, rubbing the mixture with your hands until crumbly.

Wash the meat well and then brown lightly in a deep saucepan with olive oil. Add the onions, bay leaves, garlic and the rest of the spices to taste, covering with enough water to just cover the meat. 

Kakavia

Klosta

Handmade pasta. Place the flour in a deep bowl, adding the salt and the olive oil gradually while kneading until you have a nice soft dough that is neither too floury nor too sticky.
