Learn the secrets of the Cypriot cuisine, tantalize your palate with unique traditional flavors, meet ardent handcrafters and enjoy a scenery of mountain tops dotted with fruit-bearing trees and pine trees at the Gastronomy and Traditional Festivals taking place at our picturesque villages in the Troodos Mountain Range.
Gastronomy and Traditional Festivals have a commendable way of combining traditional elements and turning them into fascinating exploratory experiences and outdoor parties. These fests offer you the chance to taste Cyprus in one day. Numerous kiosks line up like toy soldiers at the village squares where you can taste and buy traditional local delicacies, such as Trachanas soup (a thick soup based on a mixture of grain and fermented milk), Palouzes (creamy dessert; grape juice mixed with flour), Halloumi cheese, cured meats, Resi (wheat with meat dish), Glyka tou koutaliou (spoon sweet preserves), Cyprus bread, wine, Zivania (a distilled beverage) and much more. Don’t miss the cooking demonstrations by Michelin starred Cypriot chefs and TV personalities who present traditional dishes and new recipes based on local products.
