    How to Cook dishes from Cyprus


    Cyprus Cyprus is an island in the eastern Mediterranean. It is geographically part of Asia, as it to the South of Turkey, lies close to the Middle East, but has many cultural links with Europe, especially Greece.

    The island's links with Greece include the facts that the majority of Cypriots are ethnically Greek, worship at Greek Orthodox churches, and speak the Greek language. It is therefore no surprise to find that many Cypriot dishes are similar to those of Greek cuisine, and the two countries share many culinary traditions. However, it would be incorrect to say that Cypriot and Greek cuisine and the same. Cyprus also has its own distinct culinary traditions, and there are many dishes which are unique to, or at least originated on, the island. It should also be remembered that Cyprus is home to a large Turkish community, and was part of the Ottoman Empire for even longer than Greece was. It is for these reasons that the influence of and thus Turkish cuisine can be seen in many Cypriot dishes. Additionally, given the geographical proximity of Cyprus to Middle East, it is unsurprising to also find some influences from Middle Eastern cuisine have been adopted as well.

    Perhaps the most famous food product from Cyprus is halloumi, which is a type of cheese. The cheese is traditionally made from a mixture of sheep's milk and goat's milk, but when produced on a large industrial basis, cow's milk is often used as part of the recipe, or even as the main ingredient. Halloumi has a similar texture to mozzarella and has a salty taste.

    Halloumi

    Some popular Cypriot recipes and dishes include:
    • Baklava - A sweet pastry made from phyllo dough, filled with chopped nuts (pistachio nuts or walnuts).

      Baklava

    • Dips - often served with Pita (unleavened) bread - including: Hummus (chickpea dip), Melitzanosalata (eggplant dip), Skordalia (garlic sauce dip), Tahini (sesame paste dip), Taramosalata (carp roe dip) and Tzatziki (yogurt, cucumber and garlic dip).

    • Calamari - Squid rings fried in a light batter.

      Calamari

    • Dolmades - Stuffed grapevine leaves. The stuffings used are usually rice, vegetables or meat.

    • Grilled octopus - Marinated octopus, cooked on a barbecue grill.

    • Halloumi and lounza - Cypriot cheese (halloumi) with a slice of meat (usually smoked pork) or piece of sausage (usually lamb). The two are grilled together, and then eaten. Halloumi and lounza is also a popular sandwich filling.

    • Keftedes - Fried meatballs with oregano and mint.

    • Sheftalia - A traditional Cypriot sausage made from ground pork or lamb shoulder. It contains onions and parsley, as well as salt and pepper. Sheftalia are cooked on a barbecue grill, and sometimes eaten in pita bread.

    • Souvlaki - meat, fish or shrimp grilled on a skewer.

      Souvlaki Platter

    • Stifado - Beef and onion stew, flavored with red wine.

      Stifado

    • Village salad (this dish is usually known outside of Greece and Cyprus as "Greek salad") - A salad made from cucumber, tomato, bell peppers and red onion. Additionally, capers and olives are sometimes added. The salad is seasoned with salt, black pepper and oregano, and dressed with olive oil and vinegar. A lump (or some crumbled pieces) of feta cheese is often used to top the salad.
