The Aegean Flavors of Sun and Sea
The numerous islands of the Aegean, one of the largest and most important island groups in the world, is a land formed from the sun, the sea and the refreshing wind. The specific microclimate of each island has contributed to the creation of unique products, some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Thus, each island is its own unique culinary paradise.
“Kapari” Restaurant (“Kapari” in greek means “Caper”), an airy and light setting next to the sea respects what Tinos has to offer in our plates. The fertile land of Tinos covered with endemic flora like capers, mushrooms, spiny chicory, dittany, thyme, wild artichokes, oregano, prickly pears, sage, chamomile, and all types of aromatic herbs used in dishes and tisanes. Fine meat produced by small farmers, fresh fish and seafood, healthy fresh vegetables served with brilliant wine, and mouth-watering fruits all serving to create a kaleidoscope of tastes.
Many gastronomic specialties are found on Tinos Island as local artichoke, smaller and with a very tender heart, used for making myriad dishes, sun-dried tomatoes fried in butter, froutalia (omelet with sausages or cured pork), the vinegar-based “savore” sauce with grape must syrup, stuffed calamari and much more.
“Kapari” Restaurant are invited you to experience a unique culinary trip and delve into the gastronomic tradition of Tinos Island.
