* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special aspects of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the exceptional options they offer. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, and they do not serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

In years past, when people lived close to nature, their main source of nourishment was anything the earth provided. Their food may have been simple and quite humble, but it certainly did not lack flavor. Today, these traditional recipes are preserved by those lucky enough to know where and when to find these ingredients in the wild.

Besides being a delicious and frugal dish, they are also foods with unique nutritional value.

Greens, which thrive mainly during the spring and autumn months, are among the most popular options. Wild, leafy greens, wild garlic, mallows and dandelion leaves, as well as delicious wild asparagus are just some of the plants that have nurtured and fed entire generations on the island for centuries.
