There are a lot of traditional recipes on Small Cyclades. Some of them are encountered on all of these islands and prepared in the same, traditional way. Of course there is plenty of sea food and fresh fish.

Donousa

Goat stuffed with rise
This is a dish prepared on Easter. The goat meat is marinated in salt, pepper and herbs then stuffed with rise and baked in the oven.

Kavourma
This dish is made with pieces of pork fried in lard. A quite heavy but very tasty dish.

Giaprakia
Cabbage leaves are boiled in water and then carefully stuffed with rice and/or minced meat. Then they are placed in the casserole again to boil with sauce made with egg and lemon. This is one of Greece’s most tasty dishes while quite difficult and time consuming to prepare.

Fried herb pies with chard and fennel
After the sheets of dough are prepared they are stuffed with chard and fennel. They are then folded into various shapes so as to keep the stuffing and fried in a pan. A very distinctive flavour which can accompany either meat or fish dishes.
