Local Specialties
The Northern Aegean Islands have a special gastronomy as they combine traditional Greek recipes with recipes from Asia Minor. Limnos is no exception.

Rooster with tomato sauce and “flomaria”
The rooster is boiled and spiced with tomato sauce (tomato, garlic, onions, oregano, salt and pepper, and laurel); flomaria (the local version of noodles) can either be boiled separately or they can be added during the last 15 minutes in the same pot with the rooster. An alternative way to cook the same dish is in a hull in the oven. The authentic taste of Greek tradition is majestically concentrated in this dish.

“Klikia”
This is Limnos’ version of cheese pie; simple ingredients like corn flour, feta cheese, sesame, olive oil and salt, can be turned into the most tasteful snack! Klikia usually have the shape of snails and children just love them.

Pumpkin pie with “kalathaki”
In Limnos, pumpkin pie is slightly different from the rest of Greece; it has no crust top and instead of feta cheese it is filled with the local “kalathaki” cheese. The remaining ingredients are the same (eggs, onions, spices, pumpkins, etc.), but the taste is truly unique!

Venizelika
This is a Greek version of chocolate fudge with almonds and vanilla icing. It is a traditional wedding treat.   

Katimeria
Some consider it a dessert, other consider it a snack. Katimeria have cheese and honey or syrup. The fact is that they are delicious and they are ideally combined with wine.

Samsades
Samsades is a tasteful dessert made of crust filled with nuts and sesame. They have the splendid aroma of cinnamon and lemon and they can be preserved for several days in room temperature.
