LOCAL SPECIALTIES
Sifnos is the birthplace of many famous Greek chefs. The cuisine is delicious and features many traditional delicacies, usually cooked with fresh, local ingredients and spices. One of the secrets of the local cuisine is that Sifnians usually cook in clay pots and this explains the rich flavor of every dish. The sweets are also mouthwatering, while one of their mutual secret ingredients is the locally produced thyme honey. This is pure Aegean culinary delight!

Sifnos local specialties
The first thing you should try while on the island is the famous “mastelo”- lamb cooked in a traditional clay pot. The lamb is especially tender and it’s usually served with potatoes or rice.
Other local specialties are: revithokeftedes (from chickpea), caper salad and string beans with garlic sauce.
Seek the local thyme honey. It’s known for its purity, excellent quality, aroma and exquisite taste.  
Sifnos is also known for its cheese varieties. Try the xinomizithra, usually served in the Greek salad, as in almost every Cycladic island, the chloromanoura, which is used as the basic ingredient for the traditional Sifnian honey-pie, and the spicy manoura, which is truly unique.

Sifnos bakery & confectionery
Sifnos is famous for its bakery and confectionery delicacies, as well as for its local recipes. Amazing cookies, loukoumades, biscuits, marzipans, pasteli and so many more sweet tastes will definitely delight you.
Discover every different flavor in one of the numerous traditional pastry shops around the island, but mainly in Apollonia and Artemonas.
