Dining

Sifnos has a long tradition in cookery. Don’t forget that the island is the birthplace of Nikolaos Tselementes, perhaps the best known Greek chef. Try ‘ Mastelo” ( lamb cooked in a ceramic vessel with wine and dill) , revithokeftedes (chickpea-balls), chickpea soup, ambelophasoula (a local variety of beans accompanied by skordalia- a thick spread of sauce made of garlic), fresh fish, manouri and other sorts of fresh cheese, salad with locally produced capers and accompany them with local wine. For a dessert try the traditional honey pie.
