Product Description
Flomaria is the traditional pasta of the island of Lemnos: a local pasta product which is cut into very fine pieces. It is made with flour from Lemnos, fresh eggs and local sheep’s milk. In the past, kneading, spreading and cutting the dough to make flomaria was a reason for celebration. The housewives would gather together in their houses to make flomaria for each family, to sing, gossip and eat together. Cutting flomaria was an important element in determining a housewife’s skill. Flomaria were made during the summer months, so that they could dry properly. They were then stored away to be used in the cold winter months as a quick and hearty meal. Medium flomaria are ideally combined with rooster cooked with wine, partridge stew, shellfish and snail dishes.

Product History
In the old days, in the villages of Greece, pasta was usually made during the summer, when it was dried out in a natural way and kept in the house cellar in order to be served in the winter. It was considered one of the easiest food to make and a simple solution to feed a large and hungry family. Greek traditional pasta vary depending on the region, shape, size and way of cooking. Plain, with cheese, with some sauce on top, with meat, in soups or even in pies, pasta is a food that everyone enjoys no matter the recipe!
