SIFNOS, A GASTRONOMY HUB ON PAR WITH THE TOP FOODIE DESTINATIONS ON THE MEDITERRANEAN!
For lovers of good food and enviable restaurants, for those who wish to leave the beaten track
and uncover new sensations, new aromas, new tastes; for those who like to be surprised and discover the best of Greece, for those who are looking for unique and authentic experiences, gorgeous scenery, relaxing beaches, whitewashed houses and traditional village life we are passing the secret of Sifnos on to you!
Sifnos owes its fame as a foodie island to Nicholas Tselementes, one of the most influential cookery writers during the early 20th century, born in Sifnos, whose name is now synonymous with cooking.
Gastronomy is at the heart of life of Sifnos, and the extensive awareness of the island’s excellent cuisine has led to expanded interest in Sifnos.
Every year, in September, the picturesque town of Artemonas hosts the Cycladic Gastronomy Festival of Nikolaos Tselementes. Ambassadors from the Cyclades islands meet in Sifnos to present their unique gastronomic and cultural traditions. Take a walk to town and the aroma of freshly cooked delights drifting down the narrow paved alleys will fascinate you.
No foodie trip however, would be complete without attending a cooking course and learning how to make the famous ‘mastelo’ – lamb cooked in a traditional clay pot – or the mouthwatering traditional ‘loukoumades’ and cookies that will definitely delight you…
