The cuisine of Cyprus is not only influenced by Greece and Turkey, but also by the Middle East, especially Lebanon.
The most well-known culinary ambassador of Cyprus is the cheese “Haloumi” or “Helim”. It is available in many of the supermarkets all over the world but certainly is best here in Cyprus. Haloumi has the special feature that it doesn’t melt when put on the BBQ.
Less well-known specialities of the Cypriot cuisine are the Molohiya and the Kolokasi, both ingredients for the everyday home cooking of Cypriot families. The meat speciality of Cyprus is the Kleftiko, chunks of lamb that cook for hours on low temperatures in traditional clay ovens.
